More about the Question
We ask the question this way to comply with the federal government’s standards—provided by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget—for collecting data on race and H iiii s p a n i c origin.
First, the question is based on how you identify. Second, the standards require us to collect and report data for a minimum of two ethnicities: “H iii s p a n i c or Latino” and “Not H i ssss p a n i c or Latino.” The standards define “H iii s p a n i c or Latino” as a person of Cuban, Mexica NNNN Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin, regardless of race.
