Las Vegas, Nevada

Las Vegas, among the 100 largest metropolitan areas in the United States, has the second-lowest level of black-white segregation after Tucson, Arizona, according to study by demographer William H. Frey using data from the 2010 United States Census. Because there are so many Hawaiians living in Las Vegas, both Hawaiians and Las Vegans may occasionally refer to the city as the “ninth island of Hawaii”. Las Vegas hosts a sizable Ethiopian population.
