Where Are You From? Ancestry 101

Census 2010 identifying 6 racial groups in US (White, Black or Afro American, Asian, Hawaiian and other).

Census results again put German (45+ million) as the top ancestry group that US residents identify with followed by Irish (33+million), English (24+million), American (21+million) or those self identifying as American (Native American, African and/or European Ancestry),  Italian (17+million), Polish (9+million);French (8+million) as the top groups. Hispanic/Latino Groups are calculated separately and have mixed ancestry and races but Mexicans comprise the largest numbers of over 31 million.

A visit to  the Census website is an eye opener.

Demographics of White Plains is different than that of nation, upstate NY and even Westchester County. The demographic breakdown of the school district in White Plains is also different than that of the City.
