Country of Ancestry (First & Second Ancestry Reported)
Orange County, 2000 & 1990 Census

Editor's Note Not every nationality is represented in the Census statistics below. Conspicuously missing are Hispanic or Latino, Native American or some Asian ancestries. These, however, are reflected in other Census tables and Census does not seem to see it necessary to duplicate those figures in this table. Here they are included under "Other Ancestries." For a breakdown of Hispanic and Latin American ancestry and origin, please visit Hispanic or Latino Population. For Native American visit American Indian & Alaska native Population. For Asian origins, visit Asian Population.
