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.
