Enter the population of a given race and the total population of all races into the Race Percentage Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Race Percentage. 

Race Percentage Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Race Percentage.

RP = RP / TP * `100

Variables:

  • RP is the Race Percentage (%)
  • RP is the population of a given race 
  • TP is the total population of all races 

How to Calculate Race Percentage?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Race Percentage.


  1. First, determine the population of a given race. 
  2. Next, determine the total population of all races. 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = RP = RP / TP * `100.
  4. Finally, calculate the Race Percentage.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

population of a given race = 5,000

total population of all races = 10,000

RP = RP / TP * `100 = ?
