The majority of white Dominicans are descendants from the first European settlers to arrive in Hispaniola and have ancestry of the Spanish and French who settled in the island during colonial times, as well as the Canary Islanders, Portuguese who settled in the 17th and 18th centuries. Many others also descend from white Levantines, Italians, Dutchmen, Germans, Hungarians, Americans, and other nationalities who have migrated between the 19th and 20th centuries.

dbo:abstract
  • White Dominicans (Spanish: Blanco, colloq. Rubio) are Dominicans of complete or predominant European descent. They represent 16.1% of the Dominican Republic's population, according to the last population census in which race was queried. The majority of white Dominicans are descendants from the first European settlers to arrive in Hispaniola and have ancestry of the Spanish and French who settled in the island during colonial times, as well as the Canary Islanders, Portuguese who settled in the 17th and 18th centuries. Many others also descend from white Levantines, Italians, Dutchmen, Germans, Hungarians, Americans, and other nationalities who have migrated between the 19th and 20th centuries. White Dominicans make up a significant minority in the country, but it is not possible to quantify their numbers because the National Institute of Statistics (INE) does not collect racial data because of the race taboo that originated after Rafael L. Trujillo’s dictatorship; although the Central Electoral Board still collected racial data until 2014. According to a 2011 survey by Latinobarómetro, 11% of the Dominicans surveyed identified themselves as white. (en)
