#2873: HAITIANS & THE UNITED STATES CENSUS 2000: Perrault comments

From: ange perrault <ange.perrault@mail.tju.edu>

I dont know if I asked that question here about the Census:

Hypothetical problem:  Three individuals, one African-American (black), one Haitian (black)
one person of European descent (white)

Now how do we get counted as Haitians, the possible counts are:

1.  33% white, 66% black

2.  33% white, 33% black, 33% other

I pretty sure #2 would be the correct count.
