Notes: AAPI refers to Asian American and Pacific Islander, AIAN refers to American Indian and Alaskan Native. All race categories are single race and do not distinguish Hispanic ethnicity from non-Hispanic ethnicity, except for white, which is exclusive of Hispanic ethnicity (i.e., non-Hispanic white alone, Black alone, AAPI alone, and AIAN alone). Hispanic can be of any race.
