Definition and Source



The median annual household income in New Mexico according to the race and ethnicity of the household. Median family income divides the family income distribution in two parts, with half falling below the median and half above the median.
The U.S. Census uses these race categories: White, Black or African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian, Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander, Some Other Race, and Two or More Races. In addition, the U.S. Census uses two ethnic categories: Hispanic and Non-Hispanic. Hispanic (or Latino) refers to a person of Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin, regardless of race. The term 'origin' is used to indicate a person's (or the person's parents) heritage, nationality group, lineage, or country of birth. People who identify their origin as Spanish or Hispanic may be of any race.  

Data Source

U.S. Census, American Community Survey, 1-year estimates, Table S1903.


A greater range of race and ethnicity data is available from 3-year estimates for years prior to 2014. 
All of the races listed are populations who identify as Non-Hispanic.

New Mexico state-level data typically are from the American Community Survey 1-year estimates. As a result of COVID-19 data collection challenges, the 2020 New Mexico state-level data are 5-year estimates and not comparable to other years.
