Unformatted text preview: Census 2000: Race Contours Dowell Myers, Phil Ethington, Angela James, and William Frey www.usc.edufschoolsfsppd/‘researchfcensusZ000x’race_censusfindex.htrn Chart 1, “Total and Proportional Racial Population of Los Angeles County, 1940— 2000,” displays the total population, total subgroup population, and proportional share of each population in percentages, from 1940 to 2000. While the most obvious fact about the county is its great diversity, notice also that even by 1980, a most important feature of the overall patterns is that Whites reached the apogee of their population size as early as 1960, and have been declining in absolute numbers ever since. The Black population peaked in 1990, but has remained almost constant since 1980, at just under one million persons. Indeed, despite spectacular growth of the Los Angels metropolis since 1940, Whiws in 2000 are only slightly more numerous than they were in before the Second World War. In other words, the growth of Los Angeles County since 1960 is almost entirely the work of non-White and non-Black groups.
