According to the intercensal survey completed by the INEGI in March of that year, 1.4 million citizens identified themselves "in accordance with their culture, history, and traditions" as "Afro-Mexican or Afro-descendant." As 1.2% of the national populace, these numbers appeared small, particularly in comparison to the 25.7 million people who self-reported as indigenous, the only other ethnic group that the government chose to include"-- Provided by publisher.
