Polygon to Raster FID values

I have Census block group polygons to which I have joined demographic data (eg percent non-Hispanic white), and I'd like rasterize these polygons in order to perform map algebra with a different raster (of pedestrian tracks). I am using the polygon to raster tool, and under value field I am choosing my PercentWhite field. But the output raster seems have cells with the FID value of my polygons rather than the PercentWhite value. I have looked all around the internet and cannot find any information on this problem. Does anybody have any idea of why it is not using the field I choose? Or what to do about it? Thank you so much, Kelly
