Thus, Indiana’s population is to some extent black and Hispanic in the urban north and mostly white in the less industrialized south.
Though generally considered a conservative and Republican stronghold, Indiana has voted into both state and national office nearly as many Democrats as Republicans. Population (2010) 6,483,802; (2017 est.) 6,666,818. Indiana forms part of the east-central lowlands that slope downward from the Appalachian Mountains to the Mississippi River.
Although Indiana is historically part of the North, many parts of the state display a character that is much like that of the South.
This is largely a reflection of the early settlement of the region by migrants from the South, who brought with them a hearty distrust of the federal government.
Its northern areas lie in the mainstream of the industrial belt that extends from Pennsylvania and New York to Illinois.
