PROBAI
Probability of American Indian race response

Description

PROBAI represents the predicted probability that a multiple-race part-American Indian/Alaska Native respondent in the 2000 census, the ACS or the PRCS would have reported only American Indian or Alaska Native race if asked for a single race response. This predicted probability has been multiplied by 100 for PROBAI; users must divide PROBAI by 100 before using it.

For an explanation of how the predicted probability was calculated, see RACESING.

Single-race American Indians and Alaska Natives have a value of 100 on PROBAI; other single-race respondents have a value of 000. Biracial American Indian/'other race' people also have a code of 100 on PROBAI because of the bridging methodology explained in RACESING.

Codes

PROBAI is a 3-digit numeric variable which represents the predicted probability that a multiple-race part-American Indian/Alaska Native respondent in the 2000 census, the ACS or the PRCS would have reported only American Indian or Alaska Native race if asked for a single race response. PROBAI has two implied decimals. For example, a PROBAI value of 068 should be interpreted as 0.68. PROBAI specific variable codes for missing, edited, or unidentified observations, observations not applicable (N/A), observations not in universe (NIU), top and bottom value coding, etc. are provided below if applicable by Census year (and data sample if specified).

PROBAI Specific Variable Codes
000 = Other Single-race Respondents
100 = Single-race American Indians and Alaska Natives Respondents or Biracial American Indian/'Other race' people

User Note: Biracial American Indian/'other race' people are also coded as 100 because of the bridging methodology explained in RACESING. For an explanation of how the predicted probability was calculated see RACESING.
