People of the Dominican Republic

Summary
Dominicans (Dominicanos) are people identified with the Dominican Republic. This connection may be residential, legal, historical or cultural. For most Dominicans, several (or all) of these connections exist and are collectively the source of their being Dominican. "Dominican" was historically the name for the inhabitants of the Captaincy General of Santo Domingo, the site of the first Spanish settlement in the Western Hemisphere. Majority of Dominicans primarily trace their origin to the Captaincy General's European settlers, with native Taino and African influences. The majority of Dominicans reside in the Dominican Republic, while there is also a large Dominican diaspora, mainly in the United States and Spain. The total population of the Dominican Republic in 2016 was estimated by the National Bureau of Statistics of the Dominican Republic at 10.2 million, with 9.3 million of those being natives of the country, and the rest being of foreign origin.
