Crowley County, Colorado

According to the 2000 Census, Crowley County, Colorado has a population of 5,518 people. Of those, 4,577 (83%) are White, 389 (7%) are Black, and 1,244 (23%) are Latino[1]. However, 1,955 (or 35% of the 5,518 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 Crowley County a population of 3,563 with a demographic that is 87% White, 0% Black, and 22% Latino.

Reported in
Census 2000
Total 5,518 1,955 3,563
White 4,577 1,487 3,090
Black 389 376 13
Latino 1,244 476 768


[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.
