Presidio County, Texas

According to the 2000 Census, Presidio County, Texas has a population of 7,304 people. Of those, 6,205 (85%) are White, 20 (0%) are Black, and 6,162 (84%) are Latino[1]. However, 89 (or 1% of the 7,304 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 Presidio County a population of 7,215 with a demographic that is 85% White, 0% Black, and 84% Latino.

Reported in
Census 2000
Total 7,304 89 7,215
White 6,205 87 6,118
Black 20 2 18
Latino 6,162 80 6,082


[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.
