Methodology: How We Determined The Cities In Arizona With The Largest Native American Population For 2022

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 Arizona.

That lead us to the Census's most recently available data, the 2016-2020 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 5,000 people. That left us with 56 cities.

We then calculated the percent of residents that are American Indian and Alaska Native. The percentages ranked from 51.93% 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. Page took the distinction of being the most American Indian and Alaska Native, while Sahuarita was the least Native American city.
