About the districtWinston-Salem, the county seat of Forsyth County, North Carolina. According to the United States Census Bureau, Forsyth County is home to 361,220 residents. Forsyth County Schools is the fourth-largest school district in North Carolina, serving 53,340 students during the 2011-2012 school year.
Forsyth County outperformed the rest of North Carolina in terms of higher education achievement in 2012. The United States Census Bureau found that 31.6 percent of Forsyth County residents aged 25 years and older had attained a bachelor's degree compared to 26.8 percent for North Carolina as a whole. The median household income in Forsyth County was $45,809 compared to $46,450 for the state of North Carolina. The poverty rate in Forsyth County was 17.6 percent compared to 16.8 percent for the entire state.
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.
