PROBAPI
Probability of Asian/Pacific Islander race response

Description

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

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

Single-race Asians and single-race Pacific Islanders have a value of 100 on PROBAPI; other single-race respondents have a value of 000. Multiple race people whose races are all Asian, Pacific Islander, or 'other race' have a value of 100 on PROBAPI because of the bridging methodology explained in RACESING.

Codes

PROBAPI is a 3-digit numeric variable which represents the predicted probability that a multiple-race part-Asian and/or part-Pacific Islander respondent in the 2000 census, the ACS or the PRCS would have reported only Asian and/or Pacific Islander race if asked for a single race response. PROBAPI has two implied decimals. For example, a PROBAPI value of 068 should be interpreted as 0.68. PROBAPI 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).

PROBAPI Specific Variable Codes
000 = Other Single-race Respondents
100 = Single-race Asians and Single-race Pacific Islanders Respondents or Multi-racial persons whose races are all Asian, Pacific Islander, or 'Other race'

User Note: Multiple race people whose races are all Asian, Pacific Islander, or '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.
