Census Information (cont'd)

Racial and Ethnic Characteristics

Whereas in the past Glendale might have been thought of as a city largely composed of one racial group, the following graphs show that, today, Glendale is a very diverse community. It is notable that while the percentage of White residents dropped by approximately 10%, this was balanced by an equal number of people who defined themselves as being of Two or More Races. This was a new racial category introduced by the Census Bureau in 2000 and allowed respondents greater flexibility in how they define themselves. It is quite possible that Glendale did not lose any White residents between 1990 and 2000--they merely redefined themselves.

Changing Racial Composition--1970 to 2000

Armenians are not the only significant ethnic group in the city. The following table shows that large numbers of Hispanics and Asians also call Glendale home.
