Terrell County, Georgia

According to the 2000 Census, Terrell County, Georgia has a population of 10,970 people. Of those, 4,163 (40%) are White, 6,658 (60%) are Black, and 136 (1%) are Latino[1]. However, 111 (or 1% of the 10,970 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 Terrell County a population of 10,859 with a demographic that is 38% White, 61% Black, and 1% Latino.

Reported in
Census 2000
Total 10,970 111 10,859
White 4,163 23 4,140
Black 6,658 86 6,572
Latino 136 3 133


[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.
