Notes:
- The original race data from Census 2000 are modified to eliminate the "some other race" category. This modification is used for all Census Bureau estimates products and is explained in the document entitled “Modified Race Data Summary File Technical Documentation and ASCII Layout” that can be found on the Census Bureau website at http://www.census.gov/popest/archives/files/MRSF-01-US1.html. Hispanic origin is considered an ethnicity, not a race. Hispanics may be of any race.
