Nevada continues to be a fast growing state. Since 2000, the state population has grown 35%. Much of the growth has been from non-Caucasion groups, now approximately 34% of the Nevada population. Latinos make up more than a quarter of the state population (27%).
Percentage increase in total Nevada population from 2000 to 2010:
White: +12% ( Current state total: 54%)
Black: +58% (Current state total: 8%)
Hispanics: +82% (Current state total: 26.5%)
Asians: +116% (Current state total: 7%)
Native American: +10% (Current state total: 1.1%)
Multiracial: +61% (Current state total: 4.6%)
Other groups: +91%
These percentages add up to more than 100% - this is because those with two or more races may be counted in both categories if they do not select the multiracial category.

Neighborhood demographic information is sorted into census tracts, which are statistical subdivisions of a county (in this case, Washoe County). Census tracts are delineated by local census areas committees.
Generally, census tracts contain between 2,500 and 8,000 people, so areas with populations lower than 2,500 are not designated on the neighborhood maps. Keeping this in mind, some census tracts cover a larger area than others and may span several neighborhoods in order to achieve the minimum of a population of 2,500.
These tables shown below are examples of certain neighborhood demographic listings around the city. For information on all the census tracts, view The New York Times’ Census neighborhood data map.
