Between 2000 and 2010, a ring of diversity pushed out from the city center into the suburban areas surrounding St. Louis. 

While the diversity affected a startling geographic area particularly when viewed on a map, the share of people living in communities in the St. Louis metro area considered diverse increased by 6 percent; the share of those living in predominantly non-white suburbs increased by only 1 percent. The share of people living in communities considered predominantly white decreased by 6 percent. 

Overall, the region grew a modest 4 percent, to about 2.8 million people, according to the St. Louis summary data (pdf).
