The reported 2008 estimated population size in Baltimore City is 636,919 residents. African Americans represent 63.6% of this population with approximately 44,807 of these residents 65 years of age and older. Hispanics represent 2.7% of the City's population, with approximately 448 of these residents at least 65 years of age. In Prince George's County approximately 62.7% of the residents are African American with 41,172 of these residents 65 years of age and older, and almost 7.12% are Hispanic with 1,988 of these residents 65 years of age and older.
