Levy County, Florida

According to the 2000 Census, Levy County, Florida has a population of 34,450 people. Of those, 29,586 (85%) are White, 3,778 (9%) are Black, and 1,339 (3%) are Latino[1]. However, 370 (or 1% of the 34,450 people) are not residents by choice but are people in prison.

Even though prisoners cannot participate in the local community, the Census Bureau nevertheless counts them as residents of the county where they are incarcerated.

A more accurate description would not include the prisoners. This would give Levy County a population of 34,080 with a demographic that is 86% White, 11% Black, and 4% Latino.

Reported in
Census 2000
Total 34,450 370 34,080

Black 3,778 184 3,594
Latino 1,339 12 1,327


[1]The numbers for Whites, Blacks and Latinos may not add up to the total number because we have not included racial groups other than Whites and Blacks and because the Census Bureau considers "Latino" to be an ethnicity, not a race. Most of the people reported as being Latino are also counted as being White or Black.
