Johnson County more worldly, census data show

Police officers, health professionals and educators help non-English speakers and address cultural differences more often as minority populations in the county continue to increase.

In 2013, about 91.2 percent of residents, nearly 137,000 people, in Johnson County were white, down slightly from 92.4 percent in 2010. Johnson County is the fourth-most-diverse county in central Indiana, trailing Hendricks, Hamilton and Marion counties. Between 2010

and 2013, the percentage of minority populations increased in all eight counties.

The number of residents identified as members of a racial minority, including black, Asian, Hispanic and more than one race, grew by about 2,200, or 21 percent, in the past three years. By comparison, the number of white residents increased by 3,500, or nearly 3 percent, according to U.S. Census Bureau estimates.
