Texas Negro population, 1950, 977,458; total nonwhite population, 984,660. Population figures are from Bureau of Census.

Registration figures for Negroes unless otherwise noted represent paid poll tax counts, poll tax exemption lists and estimated poll tax exemptions by Long News Service, Austin, Texas. Figures are for the year from February 1958 through January 1959. Parentheses around nonwhite registration figures indicate estimates explained by footnotes next to county names.

Registration figures for whites are from a report prepared by Dr. Henry A. Bullock, Chairman, Graduate School of Research, Texas Southern University, for the Southern Regional Council.

Texas has no registration as such. Registration figures shown represent poll taxes paid, poll tax exemption lists for persons over 60 years of age who do not have to pay the poll tax in order to be eligible to vote and estimated poll tax exemptions including persons over 60 who are not listed exempts but are eligible to vote. Exemption certifi. cates are required in cities over 10,000. Estimated exemptions are based on 1950 Census data showing the number of persons over 60 residing in the county.

Population shifts, changes in age, or failure to strike the names of deceased or departed registrants since 1950 account for percentages in some cases in excess of 100 percent "registered." In such cases 100 percent is shown.

*Computed on basis of counties for which white registration figures are available.
1 Registration figures based on "county tax assessor-collector's estimate.”
? Registration figures are an "educated estimate by a political source."

3 Registration figures are a "statistical estimate based on 12 percent of total Negro population in county."

* Registration figures are a "statistical estimate based on the percentage (of poll taxes) paid in known adjoining counties."
