Population by Race Alone, Race in Combination Only, Race Alone or in Combination, and Hispanic or Latino Origin, for the United States: 2000

This table shows for the United States the population indicating race alone (column 1) and the population indicating race in combination only (column 3), which together add to the population indicating race alone or in combination (column 5). For example, the number of individuals indicating Asian alone (column 1) plus the number indicating Asian in combination only (column 3) equals the number indicating Asian alone or in combination (column 5). The population for a race alone (column 1) and the population for a race alone or in combination (column 5) provide a �minimum-maximum� range for the population of that race.

1 One of the following six races: (1) White, (2) Black or African American, (3) American Indian and Alaska Native, (4) Asian, (5) Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander, (6) Some other race. 2 In combination with one or more of the other five races listed. For example, a person who is "White and Black or African American" is included both with White and with Black or African American. 3 Alone or in combination with one or more of the other five races listed. Numbers for the six race groups may add to more than the total population, and the six percentages may add to more than 100 percent because individuals may be of more than one race. For example, a person indicating "American Indian and Alaska Native and Asian and Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander" is included with American Indian and Alaska Native, with Asian, and with Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander. 4 The total population, the Hispanic or Latino population, and the Not Hispanic or Latino population are not affected by whether data on race are for race alone, for race in combination only, or for race alone or in combination. The numbers by race do not add to the total population in column 1, column 3, and column 5, and the percentages do not add to 100 percent in column 2, column 4, and column 6. This is because the numbers by race are counts of particular types of responses by race. The numbers are not counts in which each person is included once and only once. The number of race responses is shown in italics.
