MULTIRACIAL PROFILE

The 2000 Census questionnaire was the first to allow respondents to select more than one race . Nationwide, approximately 2.4 percent of the population, over 6.8 million Americans, marked an identification with two or more races.

As is the case with many racial and ethnic groups, the multiracial population is not evenly distributed across the country. Hawaii has the largest multiracial population with 24.1 percent of its population identifying with two or more races. Alaska follows a distant second with 5.4 percent identifying as multiracial. The five least multiracial states (Mississippi, West Virginia, Maine, Alabama and South Carolina) all have multiracial populations of less than 1 percent.
