Excerpt
In response to the changing demographics of the U.S. population, in 1997 the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued new standards for collecting data on race and Hispanic or Latino origin (12). Most notably, the new standards allow respondents to the census and to Federal surveys to indicate more than one group in answering questions on race. In addition, the category ‘‘Asian or Pacific Islander’’ is now split into two distinct categories, ‘‘Asian’’ and ‘‘Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander’’ (NHOPI), for data collection purposes. Although the NHIS had allowed respondents to choose more than one race group for many years, the NHIS became completely compliant with all of the new race and ethnicity standards with the fielding of the 1999 survey. The tables in this report reflect these new standards. The text in this report uses shorter versions of the new OMB race and Hispanic or Latino origin terms for conciseness, but the tables use the complete terms. For example, the category ‘‘Not Hispanic or Latino, black or African American, single race’’ in the tables is referred to as ‘‘non-Hispanic black’’ in the text.
