Census Bureau: 4% of people in Santa Cruz identified as multi-racial in 2017

Of the 321 citizens living in Santa Cruz in 2017, 96% said they were only one race while 4% said they were two or more races, according to U.S. Census Bureau data obtained on Aug. 2 by the New Mexico Business Daily.

Of those who said they were one race, the majority identified as belonging to a race that the U.S. Census Bureau's data did not name.

An agency of the U.S. Federal Statistical System, the Census Bureau is responsible for compiling statistical facts about the American people, places and economy. Data for this story was compiled from the bureau’s American Community Survey. Information from the survey helps to determine how federal and state funds are distributed.

Statistical data for 2018 will be released later this year.
