Race and Ethnicity in Pennsylvania: Comparisons and Trends

The latest brief from the Pennsylvania State Data Center explores trends in race and ethnicity from the 2020 Census P.L. 94-171 Redistricting Data, with comparisons to 2010. The data show that the Commonwealth is more racially and ethnically diverse than last decade, with a considerable increase in the population that is multiracial, or “Two or More Races.”  The Bureau notes that these changes are due in part to improvements and changes in how race and ethnicity are measured.
