The population was an increase of 10.1 percent over that recorded in the 1990 census. The average population density in 2006 was 35 people per sq km (91 per sq mi). Whites make up the largest share of the state’s population at 71.1 percent of the people. However, at 26 percent, the share of blacks in the state is among the highest in the nation. Some 0.7 percent of the people are Asians, 0.5 percent are Native Americans, and 1.6 percent are of mixed heritage or did not report race. Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders number 1,409. Hispanics, who may be of any race, are 1.7 percent of the people. The black population is largely concentrated in the larger cities and in the central and southern counties. Blacks make up about three-fourths of the total population in Greene, Lowndes, and Macon counties. Comparatively fewer blacks live in the northern counties.
