T49. Literacy By Race (Population Age 21 Years And Over)
Universe: Total Population Age 21 And Over
Notes:
  • Universe was created by Social Explorer and is the sum of male and female 21 and over population.
  • Illiterate whites is the sum of male and female native, and foreign born illiterates 21 and over.
  • Black illiterates is the sum of male and female black illiterates 21 and over.
  • All literate categories were derived by subtracting a race group's illiterates from their respective total population 21 and above.
  • Hawaii and its counties did not iterate black illiterates, hence other races was not calculated for these observations. Users are advised that the differences between total illiterate population 21 and above, and illiterate white population is illiterate black and other race combined.
  • Hawaii and its counties contain only total illiterates and literate 21 and above counts without any other iterations.
