People reporting more than one race in Census 2000 were more likely to be under 18 than those reporting only one race -- 42 percent compared with 25 percent, a new analysis released today by the Commerce Department's Census Bureau shows.
The Census Bureau report also found that 40 percent of the Two or more races population lived in the West and about 1-in-3 were of Hispanic origin. (People of Hispanic origin may be of any race.)
One in a series of Census 2000 briefs, The Two or More Races Population: 2000, showed that 6.8 million people, or 2.4 percent of the total population, reported more than one race in the census. It was the first census that allowed individuals to self-identify with more than one race.
A listing of released and forthcoming Census 2000 briefs can be found on the Census Bureau's Web site at www.census.gov/population/www/cen2000/briefs.html, including briefs on topics such as race, Hispanic origin, gender and housing.
