Demographics

Rockingham County underperformed compared to the rest of Virginia in terms of higher education achievement in 2013. The United States Census Bureau found that 23.4 percent of Rockingham County residents aged 25 years and older had attained a bachelor's degree compared to 35.2 percent for Virginia as a whole.

American Indian and Alaska Native 0.6 0.5

Presidential Voting Pattern, Rockingham County[6]
Year Democratic Vote (%) Republican Vote (%)
2012 28.9 69.4

2004 24.9 74.4
2000 24.3 72.9

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.[7] This Ballotpedia page provides a more detailed explanation of how the Census Bureau handles race and ethnicity in its surveys.
