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 by 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 a transitional period of incorporating new race definitions for Asian, Native Hawaiian, and multiple race in 2003.
Note:  Case counts for race categories (American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian, black/African American, Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander, and white) do not include persons of Hispanic/Latino origin or multiple race.  Non-U.S.–born persons include those born outside the United States (including the U.S. territories), except persons born to at least one U.S. citizen parent.
