Difference in Population by Race and Hispanic or Latino Origin, for the United States: 1990 to 2000

This table shows for the United States the difference between the population by race in 1990 and the population by race in 2000. Because individuals could report only one race in 1990 and could report more than one race in 2000, and because of other changes in the census questionnaire, the race data for 1990 and 2000 are not directly comparable. Thus the difference in population by race between 1990 and 2000 is due both to these changes in the census questionnaire and to real change in the population. The difference in population for a race between 1990 and 2000 using race alone in 2000 (column 5) and the difference in population between 1990 and 2000 using race alone or in combination in 2000 (column 7) provide a �minimum-maximum� range for the change in population of that race between 1990 and 2000.

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 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 indicate 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. 3 The differences between 1990 and 2000 for the total population, the Hispanic or Latino Population, and the Not Hispanic or Latino population are Hispanic or Latino population may be of any race.
