Nevada Census data
Nevada Census data

AIR DATE: March 1, 2011

The 2010 Census data for Nevada is out. The numbers show Nevada was the fastest growing state in the country over the past decade. Nevada grew by 35% compared to 9.7% growth for the rest of the country. The minority population in Nevada contributed to most of that growth. As a result Nevada will gain another seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. We talk with Brookings Demographer, William Frey about Nevada's growth.

    I just heard this last night (feb 25th) on State of Nevada and once again, just like with every story involving race I rewound the discussion in my head and you could have gotten your point across without reporting the parts about hispanics and whites. Just to say that Clark County was still growing, despite all the forclosures was enough, but to break it all down by race was unnecessary. Can we ever live in a world where everyone is seen as human? I would think NPR would know this.

    Because differences between races also express the SES and cultural values, hence programs in approaching this different groups vary GREATLY!
