The demographic portrait of the seven-​county Pittsburgh region’s population is becoming less white and more diverse, according to the latest U.S. Census Bureau estimates. From 2012 to 2017, Allegheny County’s Asian population increased 23.9 percent to 48,396 residents, and the county’s Hispanic population grew 20.3 percent to 25,647 people. Conversely, Allegheny County’s African American population declined 0.2 percent, and the county’s white population declined .4 percent. Despite the large percentage increases among Asian and Hispanic residents, both groups still represent a relatively small percentage of Allegheny County’s population — 3.9 percent and 2.1 percent, respectively. Data for Allegheny County and the other six counties in the Pittsburgh metro area can be found in the charts and tables below.
