How We Determined The Cities In Vermont With The Largest Native American Population For 2019

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 Vermont.

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 2,000 people. That left us with 24 cities.

We then calculated the percent of residents that are American Indian and Alaska Native. The percentages ranked from 0.95% 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. Swanton took the distinction of being the most American Indian and Alaska Native, while Windsor was the least Native American city.

Review Of Vermont by HomeSnacks User

Burlington Vermont is a nice small city on the coast of Lake Champlain. Nature is beautiful, great food scene and countless craft breweries to taste. Other than those things the city is missing more things to do, plus it is in need of updating everything. It is very dark at night so at intersections double check before driving through. Parks say they are smoke-free, but no one enforces that rule. The bike path is a cool thing but it needs to be modernized.

Skinny Pancake is a great restaurant located on the waterfront.
