Footnotes

  1. Includes Tricare, Veterans Administration, and military health care.

  2. 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 2010 through data.census.gov. About 2.7 percent of people reported more than one race in 2010.

  3. Black alone refers to people who reported Black or African American and did not report any other race category.

  4. Asian alone refers to people who reported Asian and did not report any other race category.

  5. Because Hispanics may be of any race, data in this report for Hispanics overlap with data for racial groups. Being Hispanic was reported by 8.3 percent of White householders who reported only one race; 2.4 percent of Black householders who reported only one race; 19.2 percent of American Indian and Alaska Native householders who reported only one race; and 9.6 percent of Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander householders who reported only one race. Data users should exercise caution when interpreting aggregate results for the Hispanic population because this population consists of many distinct groups that differ in socio-economic characteristics, culture, and recency of immigration. Data were first collected for Hispanics in 1972.
