Union County, Georgia

According to the 2000 Census, Union County, Georgia has a population of 17,289 people. Of those, 16,932 (98%) are White, 100 (1%) are Black, and 153 (1%) are Latino[1]. However, 247 (or 1% of the 17,289 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 Union County a population of 17,042 with a demographic that is 98% White, 0% Black, and 1% Latino.

Reported in
Census 2000
Total 17,289 247 17,042
White 16,932 172 16,760
Black 100 62 38
Latino 153 7 146


[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.
