2010 Census Demographic Profile Summary of Nebraska

David Drozd, University of Nebraska at Omaha


The percentage of the population that is minority (non-White or Hispanic/Latino) increased between 2000 and 2010 in each 5-year age category (under 5 years through age 85 or older). The minority population comprises more than 30 percent of those under age 5 in 2010, roughly triple the percentage in 1990. See pages 3-4. Four Nebraska counties are “majorityminority” for those under age 5, and eight counties have 40 percent or more of their youngest children being minority.
