Individuals were allowed to report more than one race, however, so percentages and total population figures may not always balance out, according to the Census Bureau.
Whites make up 94 percent or more of the populations in Catoosa, Dade, Gordon and Walker counties, while blacks top 10 percent in Bartow, Chattooga and Polk counties.
The number of other minorities range from less than 1 percent in Chattooga County to Floyds 2.5 percent.
