1Asian race category reporting includes Pacific Islander from 1993–2002.
2Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander race first reported separately in 2003.
3Indicates two or more races reported for a person. Category first reported in 2003 and does not include persons of Hispanic/Latino origin.
4Persons of Hispanic ethnicity may be of any or multiple race.
5The higher count for unknown or missing race results for 1993–2001 reflect the impact of the transitional period of incorporating new race definitions for Asian, Native Hawaiian, and multiple race in 2003.
Note: Rates for 1993–1999 have been updated using Resident Population: Monthly Postcensal Resident Population, by single year of age, sex, race, and Hispanic origin (https://www.census.gov/data/datasets/time-series/demo/popest/1990s-national.htmlExternal); accessed July 6, 2017. Denominators for computing 2000–2009 case rates were obtained from the Intercensal Estimates of the Resident Population by Sex, Race, and Hispanic Origin for the United States: April 1, 2000 to July 1, 2010 (https://www.census.gov/data/tables/time-series/demo/popest/intercensal-2000-2010-national.htmlExternal; accessed July 6, 2017. Denominators for computing 2010–2017 case rates were obtained from the Annual Estimates of the Resident Population by Sex, Race, and Hispanic Origin: April 1, 2010 to July 1, 2017 (https://www.census.gov/data/tables/2017/demo/popest/nation-detail.htmlExternal); accessed June 27, 2018.
