 The 'race' question on the U.S. census is racist - why this is so and what to answer instead.
According to the FAQ on the U.S. Census Bureau website, "the Census Bureau has included a question on race since the first census in 1790," (which they somehow seem to think justifies the continuation of this census question - we've been doing it for two hundred ten years, so it must be right?).
The question of race on the U.S. census is in itself racist, not to mention meaningless in a purely scientific sense.
Thus even in the 20th century, while the world battled fascism in Europe and Asia, the answers to the race question on the U.S. Census were being used to commit wholesale discrimination against a certain group of U.S. citizens.

 INTERRACIAL VOICE - Guest Editorial (Naomi Zack)
And at this time, any wide-scale primary and secondary school instruction about the scientific flimsiness of race is likely to be strongly opposed by the same established interests who have opposed relinquishing one-drop rules in interpreting the Census 2000 data.
By the 1890 count, distinctions were made within the mulatto group down to "one-eighth or any trace of black blood." The "one-drop rule," whereby black designation resulted from any black ancestry, no matter how remote, become the social rule of the land by 1900 and it was adopted by the census in 1930.
The lack of either explicitly structured taxonomies or criteria for membership in specific categories suggests that those who composed the census form assumed that Americans have unequivocal and ready answers to questions about their identities in the Spanish/Hispanic/Latino category, and in terms of race.

The bridged-race population estimates are produced under a collaborative arrangement with the U. Census Bureau.
These estimates result from bridging the 31 race categories used in Census 2000, as specified in the 1997 Office of Management and Budget (OMB) standards for the collection of data on race and ethnicity, to the four race categories specified under the 1977 standards.
The bridged single-race population estimates are being used to calculate birth and death rates produced by NCHS for data year 2000 and later years, as well as to produce revised birth and death rates for the 1990s.

 Public Law 94-171 (1990 Census)
The Census Bureau recently released to the Subcommittee on the Census, Committee on Government Reform and Oversight, a copy of the Public Law 94 - 171 data adjusted to reflect the measured net undercounts based on the 1990 Census Post-Enumeration Survey.
In response to the anticipated demand for these data in the public discussion of Census 2000, the Census Bureau determined the release of these data on the Internet is the best and most efficient way to make these data publicly available.
Prior to this point, these data had not been publicly released except as a national total, as state totals, for cities and counties over 100,000 population, and for congressional districts.

Responses from the sample of households that reported on these long forms are then weighted by the Census Bureau to produce estimates for the entire population in the SF 3 file.

 Counting on the Census?
Since the U.S. Constitution first instructed that a slave be counted as only three-fifths of a person, the census has been caught up in America's racial dilemmas.
But Skerry also rejects the view that the census is a scientific exercise best left to the experts, and argues that it is necessarily and properly a political undertaking.
To those advocating statistical adjustment of the census, Skerry insists that the consequences of minority undercounts have been misunderstood and exaggerated, while the risks of adjustment have been overlooked.

The estimates result from bridging the 31 race categories used in Census 2000, as specified in the 1997 Office of Management and Budget standards for the collection of data on race and ethnicity, to the four race categories specified under the 1977 standards.
The study was designed with the primary objective of producing a data file that could be used to bridge between the "single" race distribution in the 1990 Census and other household surveys and the "one or more races" distribution in Census 2000.
Data from these two contacts may be used to produce "bridging parameters" to compare race distributions collected under methodologies that request either one race or one or more races.
