Race & Ethnicity

Race & Ethnicity

Bay City is fairly reflective of the State as whole in terms of diversity. There are a slightly higher percentage of Hispanic and Black residents in the City than the State overall. This does not reflect the transient population of construction workers and others who are in Bay City long term, but not captured by the Census. This transient population will influence the community, despite not being ‘counted’ as part of the population. In Census data, Hispanic is considered an Ethnicity, not a race. This means the numbers below will not add up to 100% as individuals can identify as White and Hispanic, etc.

I have lived in Bay City for 7 years after moving from the Deer Park area. We enjoy living in Bay City for many of the city's attributes; from the slow pace, friendly atmosphere to the close proximity to the beach and river. It is easy to be involved in the community's organizations because people are friendly and willing to help each other out. It is such a great welcoming culture from the Houston lifestyle.
