Brown County, Wisconsin

According to the 2000 Census, Brown County, Wisconsin has a population of 226,778 people. Of those, 206,688 (91%) are White, 2,641 (1%) are Black, and 8,698 (4%) are Latino[1]. However, 2,304 (or 1% of the 226,778 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 Brown County a population of 224,474 with a demographic that is 91% White, 1% Black, and 4% Latino.

Census 2000
Total 226,778 2,304 224,474

Black 2,641 735 1,906
Latino 8,698 72 8,626


[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.
