ANCESTRY
The data on ancestry were derived from answers to the long-form questionnaire, which was asked of a sample of the population.  The data represent self-classification by people according to the ancestry group or groups with which they most closely identify.   Ancestry refers to a person’s ethnic origin or descent, ‘‘roots,’’ heritage, or the place of birth of the person, the person’s parents, or their ancestors before their arrival in the United States.

The question was intended to provide data for groups that were not included in the Hispanic origin and race questions.  Therefore, although data on all groups are collected, the ancestry data shown in these tabulations are for non-Hispanic and nonrace groups.  Hispanic and race groups are included in the ‘‘Other groups ’’ category for the ancestry tables in these tabulations.

The ancestry question allowed respondents to report one or more ancestry groups, although only the first two were coded.  If a response was in terms of a dual ancestry, for example, ‘‘Irish English,’’ the person was assigned two codes, in this case one for Irish and another for English.  However, in certain cases, multiple responses such as ‘‘French Canadian,’’ ‘‘Greek Cypriote,’’ and ‘‘Scotch Irish ’’ were assigned a single code reflecting their status as unique groups.
