The Bureau of the Census rounds the Civilian Labor Force numbers to tenths of one percent. Percentages may not add to 100% due to rounding and the additional multi-race category in the 2000 Census Special EEO file.

The 2000 Census race and ethnicity categories follow standards created by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in 1997 which include five racial categories with reporting of multiple races. However, this report uses data collected under OMB's1977 standards that included four racial categories with no reporting of multiple races. Therefore, EEOC has bridged the categories developed under the revised 1997 standards to the categories contained in the 1977 standards. For specific guidance please refer to "EEOC's General Guidance on Combining and Bridging Race and Ethnic Categories from the Special EEO File" at http://www.eeoc.gov/stats/census/race_ethnic_data.html. For further information, see Office of Management and Budget, "Provisional Guidance on the Implementation of the 1997 Standards for Federal Data on Race and Ethnicity" (December 15, 2000).
