Fulton County, Georgia

According to the 2000 Census, Fulton County, Georgia has a population of 816,006 people. Of those, 392,598 (48%) are White, 363,656 (44%) are Black, and 48,056 (6%) are Latino[1]. However, 7,675 (or 1% of the 816,006 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 Fulton County a population of 808,331 with a demographic that is 48% White, 44% Black, and 6% Latino.

Reported in
Census 2000
Total 816,006 7,675 808,331
White 392,598 1,641 390,957
Black 363,656 5,842 357,814
Latino 48,056 503 47,553


[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.
