    changes for some groups to make patterns easier to see Asian African American Hispanic Multiple Race White Source U S Census 2000 2010 census estimates all other years The graph showing the percentage of white population in each county shows both the wide range across the region from around 50 percent white in Anson to 85 percent white in Lincoln as well as stable to slowly declining percentages within counties over time Mecklenburg has the clearest pattern of a decreasing percentage of whites Several suburban counties show a more gradual pattern of decreasing white percentage in their populations Several counties including Lincoln Stanly and Chester maintain stable percentages of whites The African American population graph also shows a wide variation in the percentage between counties in the region The stability of African Americans percentages over time is clear Many counties see no change in African American percentages over the 12 year period with the few changes staying within a range of 1 to 3 percentage points It is important to note that while percentages were relatively stable the numbers did change dramatically In 2000 there were 193 390 African Americans in Mecklenburg and the estimate in 2011 is 286 493 It shows the dramatic scale of the overall growth that an increase in the core county of more than 93 000 in this group wasn t enough to do more than maintain a relatively stable share of the population With Asian populations note the 5 percent maximum on that graph scale Mecklenburg and Catawba stand out more from the other counties with higher percentages in 2000 but Mecklenburg is the only county to exceed 4 percent in the region by 2011 Most counties fall in a narrow range of each other at around 2 percent Mecklenburg s growth in Asian population also shows a marked leveling off at 2008 in conjunction with the economic downturn The Hispanic Latino chart at a different scale to make trends easier to see shows a consistent upward pattern across the region although starting from a fairly wide range of values in 2000 In this group there is a more widespread leveling off of increases around 2008 as with Mecklenburg s Asian population Lincoln shows the largest dropoff around 2008 though the rate of increase in that county begins to slow as early as 2004 Using the same case of Mecklenburg County the number of Hispanics increased during this period from 44 871 in 2000 to 116 994 in the 2011 estimate Owen Furuseth UNC Charlotte s associate provost for Metropolitan Studies and Extended Academic Programs noted recent speculation about Hispanics leaving the area during the recession But he pointed to the persisting increases although at a less dramatic pace as suggesting a settling in process with new immigrant groups moving to communities where they already have connections and family This is a pattern Furuseth has seen statewide The multiracial group was not mapped because of the low starting percentage and consistent pattern of increase
