The population of some areas in the USA is dominated heavily by one racial or ethnic group. These areas stand out on this map. In other areas, one group may be the majority, but the population is much more evenly balanced. Still other areas have one group claiming a plurality, but not a majority.

In each neighborhood, county and state, this map shows which race or ethnicity is predominant, and by how much. It uses map colors to identify the predominant racial or ethnic group in specific areas, by county and tract. The strength of the color indicates the extent to which one group is dominant over the next most populous.
