RACOTHER
Race: some other race

Description

RACOTHER is a bivariate indicator of "some other race," regardless of what additional race(s) the person reported, if any. Thus, RACOTHER denotes the population of people who are "some other race, alone or in combination." This category was the last one listed in the race question, following 12 specific race categories, "other Asian," and "other Pacific Islander."

Beginning in 2000, individuals were allowed to report multiple races, so RACOTHER and the other bivariate race indicators (RACASIAN, RACAMIND, RACBLK, RACPACIS, and RACWHT) are not mutually exclusive in 2000 and later years. The number of reported races is given in RACNUM.

Codes

RACOTHER is a 1-digit numeric variable.

1 = no
2 = yes

Comparability

This variable is only available in the 2000 census, 2010 census, the ACS and the PRCS. See RACE for detailed discussion of changes in the question beginning in 2000, when for the first time respondents could mark as many races as applied to them.
