Population Characteristics of the Atlanta Registry
(2010 Census Data 1)
  Both Sexes % of Total Registry Population
  1. Source: U.S. Bureau of Census, Census 2010, Summary File 1, Table DP-1.
  2. Total Population equals the sum of White, Black, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, Other Race and 2 or more races.
  3. Since each person could report multiple races in the 2010 Census, race-specific counts and percentages in this table are based on persons self-reporting only one race.
  4. The Chinese, Filipino and Japanese populations are also included within the "Asian" population.
  5. Hispanic ethnicity is tabulated independently of race, so Hispanic persons may be of any race.
