NOTE: Estimates for the above race groups (white, black or African American, and Asian) do not sum to totals because data are not shown for all races. Persons whose ethnicity is identified as Hispanic or Latino may be of any race. Updated population controls are introduced annually with the release of January data. Dash indicates no data or data that do not meet publication criteria (values not shown where base is less than 50,000). Beginning in 2014, data are classified using the 2012 Census industry classification system derived from the 2012 North American Industry Classification System (NAICS).
