Definition: Estimated percentage of the child population ages 0-17, by race/ethnicity (e.g., in 2014-2018, 9% of California children were multiracial).
Data Source: U.S. Census Bureau, American Community Survey (Jan. 2020).
Footnote: In the American Community Survey, race and ethnicity are distinct concepts; because race/ethnicity categories overlap (i.e., African American/black, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian American, multiracial, and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander children can also be Hispanic/Latino), percentages may sum to more than 100%. Data are displayed for geographies with at least 10,000 residents based on 2018 population estimates. These estimates are based on a survey of the population and are subject to both sampling and nonsampling error. The notation S refers to percentages and corresponding numbers that have been suppressed because the margin of error was greater than 5 percentage points. N/A means that data are not available. Some regions listed are Census Designated Places (CDPs), such as East Los Angeles; CDPs are communities within the unincorporated part of a county. In 2010 the Census Bureau implemented new population benchmarks, so caution should be taken when comparing 2005-2009 data with later years.
