Footnotes: The race totals for 2007 were incorrect, especially in border counties (high counts of 'unknown' race). They were replaced by the averages for 2006 and 2008, projected to the 2007 totals. The 2009 counts in Menominee were also revised using the averages for 2008 and 2010. State totals were revised according to the changes in Menominee counts.
