- Growth and shifts in the three largest ethnic groups (Hispanics, Blacks, and Asians) in central and
suburban cities are compared with respect to census regions (South and West versus Midwest and
Northeast) and population in Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs). The writing on the geography of
ethnicity involves more comprehensive data collection and analysis to compare previous studies.
Conclusion from this research demonstrates that the geographic characteristics of Blacks, Hispanics,
and Asians differ in central and suburban cities between 1990 and 2000. Ethnic growth caused the
census regions of Southern and Western metropolitan areas to become increasingly diverse ethnically
and racially during the decade. The Black population grew in the central cities of census South and
West regions, while Hispanic and Asian populations grew South and West suburban cities.
