42. Social and Economic Characteristics of the Asian and Pacific Islander Population

[As of March (6,679 represents 6,679,000). Excludes members of Armed Forces except those living off post or with their families on post. Data for 1990-93 are based on 1980 census population controls; beginning 1994 data are based on 1990 census population controls. The independent estimate of 9.3 million for the Asian and Pacific Islander population differs substantially from the March (6,679 represents 6,679,000) 1995 Current Population Survey (CPS) estimate of 6.7 million for this population. The CPS estimate, based on a sample, is subject to both sampling and nonsampling errors. It is not controlled to independent estimates for this population. Estimates may differ because of different data collection and estimation procedures and sampling error. However, distributions of characteristics for the Asian and Pacific Islander population in the March (6,679 represents 6,679,000) 1995 CPS appear reasonable when compared to the 1990 census distribution. When comparing data for the Asian and Pacific Islander population for previous years, caution should be used. The difference in the Asian and Pacific Islander numbers for 1994 and 1995 are due to the growth in the number of persons reporting in the "Other race" category. Based on Current Population Survey; see text, this section, and Appendix III]
