PROBWHT
Probability of white race response

Description

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

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

Single-race whites have a value of 100 on PROBWHT; other single-race respondents have a value of 000. Hispanic 'other race' people and biracial white/'other race' people and also have a code of 100 on PROBWHT because of the bridging methodology explained in RACESING.

Codes

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

PROBWHT Specific Variable Codes
000 = Other Single-race Respondents
100 = Single-race White Respondents or Hispanic 'Other race' and Biracial White/'Other race' Respondents

User Note: Hispanic 'Other race' and Biracial White/'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.
