Definition

The total population of New Mexico by number and percentage of race and ethnicity, statewide and by county.
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, Table DP05, data.census.gov.
New Mexico data are 1-year estimates; county data are 5-year estimates.

Notes

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. 2020 data for NM counties are still comparable to other years.
