Peters, D.  ISU Extension and Outreach: SOC3098.

How diverse is Iowa? What role does diversity play in our state’s population growth? These are important questions as new residents are essential for Iowa to have a thriving economy and quality of life. The U.S. Census Bureau released the congressional redistricting data (called P.L. 94-171) to the public in August 2021, giving us a first look at Census 2020 data. The purpose of this report is to present trends in race and Hispanic ethnicity between 2010 and 2020 across Iowa counties and communities.
