New Mexico: 8 out of 33 counties I'm guessing the entire urban population is in the same eight counties.

Navajo
Apache
Maricopa
Pinal
Pima
Yuma
Mohave

Some of these counties are the most populated in the state which are the biggest job centers, others are rural with large Mormon presence (especially Mohave), and some of them are largely Native American, and others are closer to the Mexican border. I couldn't find your source so correct me if I'm wrong on my guess.
My source is the quickfacts census page.

Counties >= 25% in Arizona are:
Navajo
Apache
Greenlee
Graham
Maricopa
Santa Cruz
Yuma

Arizona is interesting because it has rural areas that are comprised of reservations, mining towns, and border towns. Navajo and Apache counties are both comprised of reservations, Greenlee and Graham counties are rural with some mining, Maricopa is the Phoenix metro area's largest county by population, and Santa Cruz and Yuma counties are rural border counties.

So it looks like areas with high amounts of Mormons and Hispanics are young areas. Pretty self-explanatory.
