Population by Race/Ethnicity

New York Finger Lakes Region

The total population of the nine-county Finger Lakes region has grown only slightly since 1990, and has been essentially flat since 2000. However, the population mix has evolved significantly. Over the last 25 years, the white (not Latino) population decreased by over 60 thousand, while other groups grew. Most notably, the Latino population grew more than 140 percent to 80 thousand.

The data for this analysis are from the nine Finger Lakes counties of Chemung, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Schuyler, Seneca, Steuben, Wayne and Yates.
