The number of students from minority groups is growing nearly everywhere. From 1990 to 1998, only about 5 percent of the counties in the United States had a decrease in the number of minority students. Counties with the largest growth were concentrated in such states as Florida, Massachusetts, Nebraska, and Nevada.

SOURCE: U.S. Census Bureau, special tabulation consistent with population estimates by age, sex, race, and Hispanic origin for counties, 1990 to 1998.
