Kitsap County, Washington

According to the 2000 Census, Kitsap County, Washington has a population of 231,969 people. Of those, 195,481 (84%) are White, 6,648 (3%) are Black, and 9,609 (4%) are Latino[1]. However, 2,392 (or 1% of the 231,969 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 Kitsap County a population of 229,577 with a demographic that is 84% White, 3% Black, and 4% Latino.

Reported in
Census 2000
Total 231,969 2,392 229,577

Black 6,648 227 6,421
Latino 9,609 104 9,505


[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.
