This chart, courtesy of the Montgomery County Planning Department, was brought to our attention by Dan Reed (of www.justupthepike.com). It shows the change in race in MoCo from 1990-2016.
Since 1990, the amount of residents identified as Asian/Pacific Isl. has nearly doubled. Black or African American residents have seen an almost 6% increase in population. The Hispanic population has nearly tripled, and the Non-Hispanic/White population has seen a decrease of approximately 28%. “Other Race” has seen an increase of almost 4%.
The 1990 MoCo numbers are very similar to the 2016 numbers for Frederick County, which are:
9.8% Black or African-American
4.8% Asian/Pacific Isl.
3.5% Other Race
