Looks at a newly identified population, enabled by the Census 2000, which for the first time offered Americans the option to self-identify as of more than one race. Finds that California’s multiracial population is hard to characterize with any basic summary statistics, because there are many racial combinations with very different characteristics, depending on the particular combination.
