Throughout its history, the racial and ethnic composition American population has been changing. Reflecting this change, the concepts used to classify the population by race, ancestry, ethnicity and nativity have also changed. This talk by Howard Hogan ’71, associate director of the U.S. Census Bureau, will address how concepts of race and ethnicity have changed over the decades and how they may change in the future. It will discuss:
* The concepts of race and ethnicity through the censuses from 1790 to 2010
* The complexity of classifying race and ethnicity
* The effect population changes have on strategies for counting by race and ethnicity
* Changing Racial & Ethnic Composition as measured in the 2010 Census
* Current Research at the Census Bureau
* Future research needs
