Guaynabo Municipio, Puerto Rico

According to the 2000 Census, Guaynabo Municipio, Puerto Rico has a population of 100,053 people. Of those, 80,171 (80%) are White, 6,187 (6%) are Black, and 97,639 (97%) are Latino[1]. However, 1,234 (or 1% of the 100,053 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 Guaynabo Municipio a population of 98,819 with a demographic that is 80% White, 6% Black, and 98% Latino.

Reported in
Census 2000
Total 100,053 1,234 98,819
White 80,171 720 79,451
Black 6,187 380 5,807
Latino 97,639 1,085 96,554


[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.
