Juneau City and Borough, Alaska

According to the 2000 Census, Juneau City and Borough, Alaska has a population of 30,711 people. Of those, 22,969 (75%) are White, 248 (1%) are Black, and 1,040 (3%) are Latino[1]. However, 158 (or 1% of the 30,711 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 Juneau City and Borough a population of 30,553 with a demographic that is 75% White, 1% Black, and 3% Latino.

Reported in
Census 2000
Total 30,711 158 30,553
White 22,969 55 22,914
Black 248 8 240
Latino 1,040 3 1,037


[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.
