    1/  Beginning with the 2003 ASEC, respondents were allowed to choose more than one race.  White Alone      
    refers to people who reported White and did not report any other race category.  The use of this           
    single-race population does not imply that it is the preferred method of presenting or analyzing data.     
    The Census Bureau uses a variety of approaches.  Information on people who reported more than one race,    
    such as "White and American Indian and Alaska Native" or "Asian and Black or African American,"            
    in Census 2000 is available through American FactFinder.  About 2.6 percent of people reported more        
    than one race.                                                                                             
    2/  Black alone refers to people who reported Black and did not report any other race category.            
    3/  Asian alone refers to people who reported Asian and did not report any other race category.            
    4/  Asian and/or Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander refers to people who reported either or        
    both of these categories, but did not report any other category.                                           
    5/  Based on the June 2006 weighting correction, 2003 AHS match, and revised tax model.
