Census Snapshot: In 1990 Garwood was home to a Very Homogeneous Population

When the 1990 Census was tabulated Central Union County* (defined below) was primarily populated by White Non-Hispanics, sometimes referred to as European Americans, according to census data.

The very Darkest blue color on the map represents census tracts with nearly 100% White populations.

In 1990, Cranford and Clark both had neighborhoods that were nearly all white, but in tiny Winfield, and Garwood the entire towns were homogeneous European American populations.

In Central Union County significant non-white, or minority populations, (seen in the lightest blue) existed in only Central Westfield and the small Roselle census tract peaking in on the far right. No section of Central Union County was majority minority.

The borough of Garwood makes up the entirety of census tract 369.


As the 2010 Census is tabulated 365 is launching a new topic, and series, on Census Information and Demographics.

365 Defines Central Union County as: Garwood, Cranford, Westfield, Mountainside, Kenilworth, Clark, and Winfield. (Scotch Plains, Linden, Springfield, Roselle Park and Roselle, though seen on the map, are not included.)
