Dooly County, Georgia

According to the 2000 Census, Dooly County, Georgia has a population of 11,525 people. Of those, 5,298 (46%) are White, 5,709 (50%) are Black, and 537 (5%) are Latino[1]. However, 1,163 (or 10% of the 11,525 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 Dooly County a population of 10,362 with a demographic that is 48% White, 47% Black, and 5% Latino.

Reported in
Census 2000
Total 11,525 1,163 10,362
White 5,298 347 4,951
Black 5,709 791 4,918
Latino 537 10 527


[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.
