                ETHNIC AND RACIAL HERITAGE

The Census provides two different ways for respondents to indicate their
     heritage. The method shown here pertains to Asian ethnicity.

As a part of the race and ethnicity questions on the short form of the 2000
  Census, members of these groups were asked to indicate one or more
                    categories of racial or ethnic origin.
