Because of the way the U.S. Census Bureau collects and disseminates Race-Ethnicity data for children, the following categories should be considered Race data: American Indian and Alaska Native alone, Asian alone, Black alone, Multiracial alone, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone, Other alone, and White alone. Categories for Ethnicity data are: Latinx (of any race) and White alone (not Latinx).

Data presented for 2010 through 2019 are Vintage 2019 population estimates. Each year the U.S. Census Bureau revises their post-2010 estimates. Therefore, data presented here may differ from previously published estimates. Figures for 2000 and 2010 represent revised population estimates for July 1, 2000 and July 1, 2010 - not actual Census counts from April 1, 2000 and April 1, 2010.
