Abstract

The citizens of Seattle represent many ethnic backgrounds. White citizens predominate, but Blacks, Asians from a variety of ethnic origins, Hispanics, and Native Americans are also in evidence in both the neighborhoods and the political life of the city. According to the 1990 census, the city's population is 75.3 percent White, 11.8 percent Asian and Pacific Islander, 10.1 percent Black, 1.4 percent Native American, and 1.4 percent other (of these, 3.5 percent identify themselves as Hispanic). But population figures for the city as a whole must be examined carefully before conclusions about integration can be drawn.
