Population of Virginia localities (total, by race, and Hispanic/Latino ethnicity), 2010-2018

data.virginia.gov | Last Updated 8 Feb 2021

This table lists the overall population of each Virginia locality, as well as a breakdown of each locality's population by race. Each column's description explains the race identification. In addition, for each locality, there is a column for those who identified their ethnicity as "Hispanic or Latino Origin." Please see note from the Census Reporter regarding race in Census data: Census data about race is complicated. While casual language and even much reporting proceeds as if each person had exactly one race, the Census Bureau allows each person to select as many as six race options, one of which is simply "some other race." Furthermore, "hispanic/latino" is not a race, but a characteristic tracked independently. Note that hispanic respondents disproportionately choose "some other race alone": nationwide, more than 25% of hispanics make that choice, compared to a fraction of a percent of non-hispanics.
