Description

Race - 1989-1995

Unicon Corporation made the following notes about this variable:
In Jan 1996, the Census revised procedures for editing and allocating the race variable. All "Other" responses were allocated into one of the 4 main race categories. This was done to offset a major increase in "Other" responses which caused severe underestimates of the American Indian and Asian Pacific Islander populations. Due to this, one should use caution when making comparisons between 1995 and 1996 data, especially for those identifying all four race groups.

These string values in the original data have been recoded as follows:

blank => -9 : Missing
