Recording America’s Diversity

During Census 2000 operations, one key message to the public was, “Fill out your census form and show pride in your heritage.” Questions on race, Hispanic or Latino origin, and ancestry allowed Americans to record their heritage.

Heritage is very much the focus of Summary File (SF 2), the second of four summary files with detailed statistics from Census 2000, representing input from 281 million people living in 105 million housing units. SF 2 offers extensive detail on the demographics of the nation’s race and ethnic groups. (Ancestry was reported on the long form and is not shown in Summary File 2, which presents short form data. Ancestry data are in Summary Files 3 and 4.)
