Methodology: How we determined the whitest places in Ohio for 2023
To rank the whitest places in Ohio, we had to determine what measurable criteria define whiteness.
We had to count how many white people living there per capita. In other words, the percentage of white people living in each city in Ohio.
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*
Our particular column of interest here was the number of people who identified as White alone.
We limited our analysis to non-CDPs with a population greater than 5,000 people. That left us with 244 cities.
We then calculated the percentage of residents that are White. The percentages ranked from 97.0% to 4.1%.
Finally, we ranked each city based on the percentage of White population, with a higher score being more White than a lower score. Canal Fulton took the distinction of being the most White, while Warrensville Heights was the least White city.
We updated this article for 2023. This report represents our tenth time ranking the whitest cities in Ohio.
