Note: The number and percents on race in this table differ somewhat from later tables in this chapter because later tables combine persons that report a single race alone or in combination with other races (e.g., persons who are Black race alone plus multi-race persons who identify with both Black race and another race), whereas this table focuses on single-race reporting.
