1 Census 2000 terminology and categories are used for data on race. Because individuals could report only one race in the 1990 census and could
report one or more races in Census 2000, data on race for 1990 and 2000 are not comparable. See "Population by Race and Hispanic or Latino
Origin for the United States: 1990 to 2000," (PHC-T-1). At <www.census.gov>, select Population Tables/Reports, then select List of Tables.
2 Census 2000 terminology is used for ethnic categories. The corresponding term for "Hispanic or Latino" in the 1990 census was "Hispanic origin."
3 Sample data on unmarried-partner households, as shown in U.S. Bureau of the Census, 1990 Census of Population, Social and Economic Characteristics
(1990 CP-2), report series published 1993-1994.
