Census Shows Growing Diversity in New York City

Sam Roberts from New York Times reports on various striking trends (young population growth, poverty rates and median household income are a few), which are revealed in new census figures that produce a detailed snapshot of New York City neighborhoods and of the metropolitan area’s smaller cities and towns since the 2000 census.

"Many of the findings regarding income, poverty and migration are likely to be affected by the recession, which began about the same time that the latest survey was completed, in December 2007. Demographers said that some of the survey’s brighter spots might well be remembered as the high-water marks of the Wall Street boom."
