  • The New Race Question: How the Census Counts Multiracial Individuals

    Book Series, December 2015 | November 2002
    Edited by Joel Perlmann and Mary C. Waters

    The change in the way the federal government asked for information about race in the 2000 Census marked an important turning point in the way Americans measure race. By allowing respondents to choose more than one racial category for the first time, the Census Bureau challenged strongly held beliefs about the nature and definition of race in our society. The New Race Question is a wide-ranging examination of what we know about racial enumeration, the likely effects of the census change, and possible policy implications for the future.
