Although the vast majority of Vermont’s population identify as white, the state is growing more racially diverse, especially in early childhood. Almost half the non white population under 10 identify as two or more races or multiracial (4.2%), higher than in the Vermont population as a whole (1.9%). Similarly, 2.6% of children under 10 identify as Hispanic or Latino compared with 1.8% of the population as a whole. Table 1 shows the distribution of children under 10 and the total population by race [1].
