Race/Ethnicity
Population by Race/Ethnicity signifies the racial/ethnic distribution of persons within your ministry area according to the self-identification of the respondents. It does not denote a clear-cut scientific definition of biological type.
White: Persons who identified their race as White, as well as persons who did not classify themselves in one of the specific race categories listed on the Census questionnaire but provided a written response such as Canadian, German, Italian, Lebanese or Polish. Persons of Hispanic origin who indicated White as their race have been subtracted from this figure.
African-American: Persons who indicated their race as Black or Negro, as well as persons who did not classify themselves in one of the specific race categories listed on the questionnaire, but reported entries such as African-American, Afro-American, Black Puerto Rican, Haitian, Jamaican, West Indian, or Nigerian. Persons of Hispanic origin who indicated Black as their race have been subtracted from this figure.
Hispanic/Latino: An ethnic rather than race classification which identifies the number of persons of Spanish/ Hispanic descent including: Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, and Other Spanish. Persons of Spanish origin may be of any race. All persons who indicated Hispanic origin are included in this figure regardless of the race they chose.
Native American: Persons who classified themselves as American Indian, Eskimo or Aleut. In addition, persons who did not report themselves in one of the specific race categories, but reported the name of an American Indian Tribe or reported entries such as Canadian Indian, French-American Indian were classified as American Indian.  Persons of Hispanic origin who indicated Native American as their race have been subtracted from this figure.
Asian: Persons who identified themselves as such by selecting one of the Asian Races. Persons of Hispanic origin who indicated Asian as their race have been subtracted from this figure. See Asian Population By Race below for a detailed breakdown of Asian population.
Pacific Islander: Persons who indicated their race as Pacific Islander or identified themselves as one of the Pacific Islander cultural groups of Polynesian, Micronesian, or Melanesian.
Other Races: Those persons not included in the categories White, Black, American Indian, Eskimo or Aleut, and Asian and Pacific Islander. Persons who provided such write-in entries such as Interracial, Wesort, Issues, Jackson White or a Spanish/Hispanic origin group (for example, Mexican, Cuban, Puerto Rican) were included in the "Other race" category. Persons of Hispanic origin who indicated Other as their race have been subtracted from this figure.
Note: The Trends report provides updated and projected racial/ethnic figures although they are not as detailed as these Census figures.
