Nearly 44,000 centenarians were white, compared to 6,516 who were black and 3,089 who were Hispanic.

Regarding living arrangements, the bureau estimated that roughly a third of centenarians lived with family members, a third were in nursing homes and a third lived alone. White centenarians were least likely to be living with relatives, compared with Hispanics, who were highly likely to live with their families.
