Reading the Chart:

The entries under the Race % headings are percentages of the race(s) as self-identified by the respondents. For example, the entry in the first row (United States) in the White column is 75.1, meaning that 75.1% of the U.S. population identify themselves as white.

Hispanic & Latino % values are percentages of the Hispanic & Latino classification, also self-identified.

The length of the colored bars in the Race % and Hispanic & Latino % table cells are in proportion to the value of the number in the cell. For example, the colored bar in the cell showing 75.1 is 75.1% as wide as the cell. For small percentages the colored bar does not appear.

Population counts people. Here the colored bars represent percentages of the highest population of any county in the state. For example, the county with the highest population will have a colored bar that fills the cell. A county with half that many people will have a colored bar that fills half the cell. For small percentages the bar does not appear.

Abbreviations used in location names: Co. = County, C.A. = Census Area, Pa. = Parish, Municipio = Mu.
