Franklin County, Vermont

According to the 2000 Census, Franklin County, Vermont has a population of 45,417 people. Of those, 43,627 (96%) are White, 138 (307%) are Black, and 270 (600%) are Latino[1]. However, 238 (or 1% of the 45,417 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 Franklin County a population of 45,179 with a demographic that is 96% White, 0% Black, and 1% Latino.

Census 2000
Total 45,417 238 45,179

Black 138 12 126
Latino 270 4 266


[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.
