America's racial and ethnic composition is changing rapidly, primarily due to immigration, higher fertility rates among Hispanics, and more acurate reporting of biracial data. The 2000 census was the first opportunity for respondents to designate more than one racial category. The demographic categories profiles in this text are American Indians/Alaska Natrives, Asians, blacks, Hispanics, and non-Hispanic whites. For each racial or ethnic category, the editors provide multiple sections displaying statistics on housing, income, household spending, homeownership, education, health, health care coverage, family and living arrangements, age, sex, population by metropolitan area, employment by occupation, how time is spent outside of the workplace, and more, In addition to quantifiable data, there is attitudinal information on such topics as happiness, religion, premarital sex, homosexuality, the death penalty, abortion, socioeconomic aspirations, trust, and others. Each data section is introduced with a short narrative summary. The statistics presented show our differences as well as our similarities. As an exaple of the information provided, American Indians/Alaska Natives is the smallest minorityh--makiong up 1 percent of the total U.S. population or 3.1 million people,
Aabout 76 percent of this segment are high school graduates, and 40 percent have attended college for at least one year. We also learn American Indians spend 87 percent more time than average in religious activities, and 80 percent more time in sports, exercise, and recreation. This reference provides a family portrait of the American population and helps researchers better understand the multicultural segments of our population. This resource can be used to make informed decisions in the areas of public policy, market research, and business strategies. --American Reference Books Annual
