Saratoga County, New York

According to the 2000 Census, Saratoga County, New York has a population of 200,635 people. Of those, 192,579 (96%) are White, 2,725 (1%) are Black, and 2,834 (1%) are Latino[1]. However, 1,058 (or 1% of the 200,635 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 Saratoga County a population of 199,577 with a demographic that is 96% White, 1% Black, and 1% Latino.

Black 2,725 486 2,239
Latino 2,834 234 2,600


[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.
