Working on the 2010 census data ….

…. and it looks like Kitsap County has had little change in racial and ethnic makeup over the past 10 years. In 2010, 83 percent of Kitsap residents were white; 6 percent Hispanic; 5 percent Asian; 3 percent black; and 2 percent Native American.

The most significant change, and there wasn’t much, was the growing percentage of Hispanics in Kitsap County, from 4 percent in 2000 to 6 percent in 2010. In real numbers, 9,609 Hispanics lived in Kitsap County in 2000, and in 2010 that number had grown to 15,686.

More coming in a few days as I continue to sift through data.
