ETHNIC AND RACIAL HERITAGE

The Census provides two different ways for respondents to indicate their heritage. The method shown here pertains to Asians, American Indians and Alaskan Natives, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders, and persons of Hispanic ethnicity. As a part of the race and ethnicity questions on the short form of the 2000 Census, members of these groups were asked to indicate one or more categories of racial or ethnic origin. In the case of Americans Indians and Alaskan Natives, respondents were given the opportunity to identify their affiliation with one or more tribes.
