This is a map of the United States corresponding to each county’s predominant ethnic group.
An overwhelming majority of U.S. counties have a Caucasian-dominant community (marked in orange). The Hispanic/Latin society (bronze) is the second-most dominant, with a large presence in the southwestern U.S. states, as well as in a few counties in Washington, Kansas, and Florida.
Some counties in the Mountain states and in Alaska have a significant Native American-majority population (green). The prevalent African-American counties (purple) are located in the southeastern U.S. states.
Finally, there are counties in several states, including all of Hawaii, that do not have an ethnic majority (gray).
