Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously.

Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.[3]
