There are three major races in America that come to most of our minds right away:

  1. White
  2. Hispanic
  3. African American

But those are only the major races, there’s a whole bunch of other races people are interested in knowing about.

And today, we are going to look at the percent of the population in Ohio that are Native American.

Native Americans are not a major portion of the current American Population, but they are still very important.

There are now over 2 million people who identify as Native American living in America, making up .65% of the total population. According to the most recent American Community Survey, the Native American population in Ohio is 17,032 – at 0.1% of the total population of Ohio.

So, what how does the Native American population stratify across Ohio? Which cities and towns in Ohio have seen the greatest increase in their Native American population?

Here are the 10 cities in Ohio with the largest Native American population in 2019:

  1. Marietta (Photos)

We still believe in the accuracy of data — especially from the census. So that’s where we went to get the breakdown of race across Ohio.

That lead us to the Census’s most recently available data, the 2013-2017 American Community Survey data from the US Census.

Specifically, we looked at table B03002: Hispanic OR LATINO ORIGIN BY RACE. Here are the category names as defined by the Census:

  • Hispanic or Latino
  • White alone*
  • Black or African American alone*
  • American Indian and Alaska Native alone*
  • Asian alone*
  • Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone*
  • Some other race alone*
  • Two or more races*
* Not Hispanic or latino

Our particular column of interest here was the number of people who identified as American Indian and Alaska Native alone.

We limited our analysis to places with a population greater than 5,000 people. That left us with 247 cities.

We then calculated the percent of residents that are American Indian and Alaska Native. The percentages ranked from 1.39% to 0.0%.

Finally, we ranked each city based on the percent of American Indian and Alaska Native population with a higher score being more American Indian and Alaska Native than a lower score. Marietta took the distinction of being the most American Indian and Alaska Native, while Ada was the least Native American city.
