In March, the Census Bureau Population Division released a working paper that examines the accuracy of race/ethnicity reporting during the 2010 Census. The working paper – Race Reporting Among Hispanics: 2010 – examines race reporting trends by Hispance respondents during the 2010 Census. The authors found that approximately “two-fifths of self reported Hispanic did not identify with any of the OMB race categories.” The authors conclude that the Census Bureau will need to conduct further testing to better understand race reporting by Hispanic respondents.
