Metropolitan Diversity: Chicago, 2000-10

Click between 2000 and 2010, and you'll see a colorful change in the outer reaches of the Windy City. Diverse density has hit the suburbs, according to the city’s metropolitan profile.

The profile of the Chicago region in 2000 was predominantly white with small nonwhite and diverse communities surrounding Chicago proper. The 2010 map reveals a sprawling westward movement of diversity.


Two suburbs transforming the fastest: Posen village, which increased from 34 percent nonwhite in 2000 to 72 percent in 2010; and Stickney village, from 24 percent to 55 percent.

The region's population grew in the decade by almost a third, to nearly 9.5 million residents.
