* Unincorporated community
** U.S. Census estimates based on American Community Survey data collected from 2011 through 2015. These estimates are issued annually between full Census counts conducted each decade.
*** "Population of one race" refers to those who identified themselves to the Census as of one race only. "Population of two of more races" refers to those who identified themselves as of at least two races. "Total Population" is the combination of both. "Hispanic of Latino" is not considered a "race" by the Census. Rather, it is a cultural/ethnic classification that overlaps with race. Persons who identify themselves as "Hispanic or Latino" must also identify themselves with a race or combination of races. In fact, a large number of these persons identify themselves with the racial classification "white." We have added a column under "Population of one race" that is titled "White (Not Hispanic or Latino)."
