Four Kansas Counties Now Minority-Majority
05/26/2009

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - The U.S. Census estimates four counties in

Kansas have reached "minority-majority" status.

Figures released earlier this month show that between 2007 and

2008, Finney County joined the counties of Seward, Ford and

Wyandotte where non-Hispanic whites were minorities. Grant and

Hamilton counties are expected to join them in 2021 if current

population growth patterns continue.

The estimates were based on births, deaths and migration figures

from the Internal Revenue Service and Medicare.

Geary County was the state's fastest-growing county from 2007 to

2008, largely because of an increase in troops based at Fort Riley.

Overall, the Census Bureau estimates 47 Kansas counties saw

population increases during that period, while 58 saw their

populations shrink.
