a The Massachusetts Superset includes 31 ethnicity categories and additional "sub-ethnicities" that are not required for reporting but that an organization can collect, if useful. Acute care hospitals and health plans are required to report the basic Office of Management and Budget (OMB) race categories along with the 31 granular ethnicity categories noted in this table with a footnote (a).
b The Census Ancestry codes do not roll up to the OMB race and Hispanic ethnicity categories. There are grouped into more broad categories based on geography: Western Europe, Eastern Europe and Soviet Union, Europe, Hispanic (including Spain), West Indies (except Hispanic), Central and South America (except Hispanic), sub-Saharan African, South Asia, Other Asia, Pacific, and North America (except Hispanic).
c The Kaiser Permanente list also includes "Jew/Jewish."
