Duval County, Texas

According to the 2000 Census, Duval County, Texas has a population of 13,120 people. Of those, 10,525 (77%) are White, 71 (546%) are Black, and 11,544 (85%) are Latino[1]. However, 514 (or 4% of the 13,120 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 Duval County a population of 12,606 with a demographic that is 82% White, 0% Black, and 88% Latino.

Reported in
Census 2000
Total 13,120 514 12,606
White 10,525 213 10,312
Black 71 41 30
Latino 11,544 403 11,141


[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.
