Racial and Ethnic Makeup of Arizona
By Arizona Office of Economic Opportunity
On Friday, December 6, Ethnic Media Services partnered with Arizona One and Arizona Community Foundation to hold a briefing on the 2020 Census in Phoenix, Arizona. Specifically, the briefing focused on the high stakes for ethnic Arizonans and the youngest kids, historically the hardest to reach.
The following report was prepared by Jim Chang, Arizona State Demographer, and the Arizona Office of Economic Opportunity. It includes data on Arizona’s population by age and ethnicity over time, as well as a sample copy of the Census form.
