RACPACIS
Race: Pacific Islander

Description

RACPACIS is a bivariate indicator of "Pacific Islander" race, regardless of what additional race(s) the person reported, if any. Thus, RACPACIS denotes the population of people who are "Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander alone or in combination."

Pacific Islander races listed on the form were: Native Hawaiian; Guamanian or Chamorro; Samoan; and "other Pacific Islander." The specific race(s) can be identified using the detailed version of RACE.

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

Codes

RACPACIS is a 1-digit numeric variable.

1 = no
