|Racial Demographics, 2012|
|Race||Val Verde County (%)||Texas (%)|
|Black or African American||1.8||12.3|
|American Indian and Alaska Native||0.8||1.0|
|Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander||0.2||0.1|
|Two or More Races||0.9||1.7|
|Hispanic or Latino||80.5||38.2|
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. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent. This Ballotpedia page provides a more detailed explanation of how the Census Bureau handles race and ethnicity in its surveys.
