The Seattle Times features the history of Immaculate Conception Church to explore the demographic changes in the neighborhoods of the area revealed in the 2010 census numbers.
For the first time in 60 years, more than half of the neighborhood’s residents — 58 percent — are white, according to recently released census data. The shift began in the 1990s, when the Central Area started becoming whiter and wealthier — changes accepted, and sometimes lamented, by residents.
It’s an interesting take on the census data with beautiful photography. We’ll have more local looks at the 2010 census in coming days as we crunch the numbers and wrangle the mapping software.
