The number of children ages 0 to 17 by age group and by percentage of overall population. Data for New Mexico reflect the number of children in each age group throughout the state and the corresponding percentage of the total state population. Data for tribal areas reflect the number of children in each age group for each tribal area and the corresponding percentage of the overall tribal population.
U.S. Census Bureau, American Community Survey, 5-year estimates, Table B01001.
Data for the
tribal areas refer only to individuals living in those jurisdictions and
do not include those living in other rural areas or cities within New Mexico. Data for all tribal areas reflect only those living on the portion of the tribal area that is located in New Mexico, e.g., Navajo and Zuni.
The vast majority of individuals living in most tribal areas are,
themselves, Native Americans. Those who are not Native American alone can be either a different race entirely, or may be two or more races, with
Native American being one of those races.
