White Jamaicans or European Jamaicans are Jamaicans whose ancestry lies within the continent of Europe, most notably England, Ireland[1], Scotland, Spain, Germany[2], and Portugal[3]

As of 2013, people of solely European descent are a small minority in Jamaica making up only 0.2% of the population. As with most Anglo Caribbean countries, most Jamaicans who are of mixed ancestry self-report as 'black'.[4][5] In 2011, the CIA World Factbook estimated that the population of Jamaicans who are of mixed African and European ancestry is at about 96%.[6]
