The number and percentage of children, ages 0-19, by race and ethnicity in New Mexico, statewide and by county.
Percentage is calculated by dividing the number of children ages 0-19 for each race and ethnicity by the total number of children ages 0-19.
The U.S. Census uses these race categories: White, Black or African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian, Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander, Some Other Race, and Two or More Races. In addition, the U.S. Census uses two ethnic categories: Hispanic and Non-Hispanic. Hispanic (or Latino) refers to a person of Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin, regardless of race. The term 'origin' is used to indicate a person's (or the person's parents) heritage, nationality group, lineage, or country of birth. People who identify their origin as Spanish or Hispanic may be of any race.
U.S. Census, American Community Survey.
New Mexico data are 1-year estimates; county data are 5-year estimates.
The number of children ages 0-19 for each race and ethnicity is derived from Tables B01001B, B01001C, B01001D, B01001E, B01001F, B01001G, B01001H, B01001I; the total number of children ages 0-19 for New Mexico and each county is derived from Table B01001.
Some people in each race listed may identify also as Hispanic. Thus, the sum of the percentages is greater than 100%.
1-year data for the Native Hawaiian population is not available (NA) because the number of sample cases is too small.
