-Represents zero or round to zero. *Statistically different from zero at the 90-percent confidence level. 1 A 90-percent confidence interval is a measure of an estimate’s variability. The larger the confidence interval in relation to the size of the estimate, the less reliable the estimate. For more information see ‘‘Standard errors and their use’’ at <www.census.gov/hhes/www/p60-226sa.pdf>. 2 Details may not sum to total because of rounding. 3 Data for American Indians and Alaska Natives, and Asian, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islanders are not shown separately. 4 The 2003 and 2004 CPS asked respondents to choose one or more races. White alone refers to people who reported White and did not report any other race category. The use of this single-race population does not imply that it is the preferred method of presenting or analyzing data. The Census Bureau uses a variety of approaches. Information on people who reported more than one race, such as White and American Indian and Alaska Native or Asian and Black or African American, is available from Census 2000 through American FactFinder. About 2.6 percent of people reported more than one race in Census 2000. 5 Black alone refers to people who reported Black and did not report any other race category. 6 Asian alone refers to people who reported Asian and did not report any other race category.
