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.
