Crawford County, Michigan

According to the 2000 Census, Crawford County, Michigan has a population of 14,273 people. Of those, 13,757 (93%) are White, 214 (1%) are Black, and 142 (1%) are Latino[1]. However, 295 (or 2% of the 14,273 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 Crawford County a population of 13,978 with a demographic that is 98% White, 0% Black, and 1% Latino.

Reported in
Census 2000
Total 14,273 295 13,978
White 13,757 109 13,648
Black 214 170 44
Latino 142 12 130


[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.
