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.
