 Publisher description for Library of Congress control number 2004002874
This collection should have broad appeal." --Diane Raymond, Dean and Professor of Philosophy and Women's Studies, Simmons College The United States Census 2000 presents a twenty-first century America in which mixed-race marriages, cross-race adoption, and multiracial families in general are challenging the ethnic definitions by which the nation has historically categorized its population.
From Naomi Zack's "American Mixed Race: The United States 2000 Census and Related Issues" to Cathy Irwin and Sean Metzger's "Keeping Up Appearances: Ethnic Alien-Nation in Female Solo Performance," this diverse collection spans the realities of multiculturalism in compelling new analysis.

 Census Publications of the United States
Census 2000 is the first Census where respondents could choose multiple race categories; therefore it is necessary to read the Census documentation about using race data.
From the first census in 1790 through the twelfth census in 1900, the census was the responsibility of the Department of the Interior.
The Census Bureau now provides sixty-three categories of race in combination with Hispanic/Latino categories, tabulated for both total population and people of eighteen years of age or over.

 Multiracial
But multiracial people won a victory of sorts with the 2000 United States Census, which allowed participants to select more than one of the six available categories, which were, in brief: White, Black, Asian, Native North American, Pacific Island, Other.
The census takers had intended " Hispanic " to be a different dimension to other categories, so it would include "White Hispanic", "Black Hispanic" and so on, so these people disappeared from the mixed-race figures in the 2002 estimates.
Apparently contradicting this, more recent census data shows the population of England (in lieu of the UK) to be 1.3% mixed-race (2001), compared with, for example, 1.4% in the USA (2002 estimates, see below).

 The 'race' question on the U.S. census is racist - why this is so and what to answer instead.
Most notably, census data was used during the Civil War to identify the number of free and slave African-Americans prior to General Sherman's March to the Sea campaign and during World War II to identify the location of Japanese-Americans in the United States.
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.
