Rural Welfare Reform



To better reflect the growing diversity in our country, the 2000 Census changed how people could report their race. For the first time, people could report if they were a member of more than one racial category.


Hispanic origin refers to ethnicity, a distinct concept from race, and thus is counted separately.


The web address for the data source in this update has changed from that on the hard copy. 


See below for a more recent website address.
