The largest city in Indiana is Indianapolis, which is also the state capital, which is home to more than 860,000 people as residents. Indiana's black population, which is already the state's largest non-white group, is expected to increase by more than a quarter by 2030. InContext is an award-winning publication from the Indiana Business Research Center at Indiana University's Kelley School of Business. According to Professor Paul Mullins, an anthropologist at Indiana-Purdue University, in the late 1930s and 1940s, many blacks moved to the city in search of jobs, as a result of the country's continued urbanization and the increase in job opportunities created by World War II.
Indiana is located just inside the eastern half of the United States, and statistics show that it took a while for the state to embrace the huge waves of first settlers who arrived in the country in the 18th century. In terms of numerical growth, Indiana's black population will show the highest increase among non-white race groups, with an increase of 146,000 people. Support is or has been provided by the State of Indiana and the Lilly Foundation, the Indiana Department of Workforce Development and Indiana University. STATS Indiana is the statistical data company of the state of Indiana, developed and maintained since 1985 by the Indiana Business Research Center of the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University.
In addition, 20 percent of Indiana's total growth during this period is expected to occur in the black population. This represents the largest number of Indiana counties showing a decline between censuses since the 1980s. Indiana Avenue, which was once considered the Broadway of black Indianapolis during the 1930s and 1940s, is an example. Five-year estimates from the Census Bureau's American Community Survey (ACS), a national survey that collects census data over a five-year period, show a new shift in Indianapolis's demography.
Some relatively large Indiana counties that experienced significant population losses include Grant (-4.8 percent) and Wayne Counties (-3.4 percent). The highest growth rates were recorded in central Indiana, including Hamilton County (12.01%), Boone County (11.43%) and Hendricks County (8.45%). The primary ancestors of Indiana residents include Germans, and nearly a quarter of the population claims to have this ancestry. In terms of pure land mass, the state of Indiana covers an area of 36,418 square miles (94,321 square kilometers), making it the 38th largest state in the country by area.
