Race and Ethnicity as a Share of the Total, Change, 2000 to 2010
Between 2000 and 2010, the non-Hispanic white share of the population fell nationally and in Arizona, though the share rose in Apache and Navajo counties. In contrast, the Hispanic share increased nationally and in all Arizona counties except Pinal. The non-Hispanic Native American share fell by more than 1 percentage point in several counties, but it rose in Gila County. In each of the other racial/ethnic groups, the largest increase in share occurred in Pinal County. The rapid suburbanization of Pinal County caused in-migration of most groups; the population growth of these groups was greater than that of American Indians, which primarily results from net natural increase.
