Menominee County, Wisconsin

According to the 2000 Census, Menominee County, Wisconsin has a population of 4,562 people. Of those, 528 (13%) are White, 3 (75%) are Black, and 122 (3%) are Latino[1]. However, 35 (or 1% of the 4,562 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 Menominee County a population of 4,527 with a demographic that is 12% White, 0% Black, and 3% Latino.

Census 2000
Total 4,562 35 4,527
White 528 0 528
Black 3 0 3
Latino 122 1 121


[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.
