The demographic portrait of the seven-county Pittsburgh region’s population is becoming less white and more diverse, according to the latest U.S. Census Bureau estimates.
From 2011 to 2016, Allegheny County’s Asian population increased 24.5 percent to 45,921 residents, and the county’s Hispanic population grew 22.9 percent to 24,889 people. Conversely, Allegheny County’s African American population increased just 0.3 percent, and the county’s white population declined 2 percent.
Despite the large percentage increases among Asian and Hispanic residents, both groups still represent a relatively small percentage of Allegheny County’s population — 3.7 percent and 2 percent, respectively.
