Footnotes:

  1. The 2003 Current Population Survey (CPS) offered respondents the option of choosing more than one race. The 2002 and 2001 CPS recorded only one race for each respondent. The 3-year averages are based on combining the 2003 CPS race categories shown in the stub with the relevant single race categories of White, Black, American Indian or Alaska Native, or Asian and Pacific Islander recorded in the 2002 and 2001 CPS. The 3-year average median is the sum of the 3 inflation-adjusted single-year medians divided by 3.
  2. The 2-year averages for 2001-2002 are based on combining the 2003 CPS race categories shown in the stub with the relevant single race categories of White, Black, American Indian or Alaska Native, or Asian and Pacific Islander recorded in the 2002 CPS. The 2002 and 2001 CPS only recorded one race for each respondent. The 2-year averages for 2000-2001 are based on the race categories of White, Black, American Indian or Alaska Native, or Asian and Pacific Islander recorded in the 2002 and 2001 CPS. The 2-year average median is the sum of the 2 inflation-adjusted single-year medians divided by 2.
  3. 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," is available from Census 2000 through American FactFinder. About 2.6 percent of people reported more than one race in 2000.
  4. Black alone refers to people who reported Black and did not report any other race category.
  5. American Indian and Alaska Native alone refers to people who reported American Indian and Alaska Native and did not report any other race category.
  6. Asian alone refers to people who reported Asian and did not report any other race category.
  7. 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 race category.
