Data Source

Bridged race estimates produced by US Census Bureau in collaboration with the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS).
Note: NCHS will cease releasing bridged-race population estimates after release of the bridged-race intercensal population estimates for July 1, 2010-July 2019. With the release of the intercensal population estimates, the series will be discontinued.


The majority of children in the category "American Indian or Alaska Native" are Alaska Native.  Approximately 0.5% of Alaska's population are American Indian.
