*Race/ethnicity categories developed in 1997 by the federal government are used to describe groups to which individuals belong, identify with or belong in the eyes of the community. The categories do not denote scientific definitions of anthropological origins. The designations are used to categorize U.S. citizens, resident aliens and other eligible non-citizens.
