About this application: This application provides summary profiles showing frequently requested data items from various US Census Bureau programs. Profiles are available for the nation, states, and counties.
The Ethnicity estimates of the population are produced for the United States, states, and counties by the Population Esimates Program and the ethnicity estimates of the population are produced for Puerto Rico, muncipios (county-equivalents for Puerto Rico), places, zona urbanas and comunidades (place-equivalents for Puerto Rico), and minor civil divisions by the AmericanCommunity Survey.
The U.S. Census Bureau adheres to the U.S. Office of Management and Budgets (OMB) definition of ethnicity. There are two minimum categories for ethnicity: Hispanic or Latino and NotHispanic or Latino. OMB considers race and Hispanic origin to be two separate and distinct concepts. Hispanics and Latinos may be of any race. Thus, the percent Hispanic should not be addedto percentages for racial categories.
Hispanics or Latino refers to a person of Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin regardless of race. This includes people who reported detailed Hispanic or Latino groups such as:
Central American (excludes Mexican)
Other Central American
Other South American
All other Hispanic or Latino
Origin can be viewed as the heritage, nationality group, lineage, or country of birth of the person or the persons parents or ancestors before their arrival in the United States.
Data users should be aware of methodology differences that may exist between different data sources.
