Table 2. Population by Race and Hispanic or Latino Origin, for All Ages and for 18 Years and Over, for
Connecticut: 2000 and 2010
This table provides a state summary of the data included in the 2000 and the 2010 Redistricting Data Summary Files. Data are shown by
age for the Hispanic or Latino population, as well as for people who reported one race and for people who reported two or more races. The
population of One Race is the total of the population in the 6 categories of one race. The population of Two or More Races is the total of the
population in the 57 specific combinations of two or more races. The redistricting files include data for all 63 groups. This table also shows
the numeric and percent change in the population by race and Hispanic origin between 2000 and 2010.

Note: The observed changes in Hispanic origin and race counts between Census 2000 and the 2010 Census could be attributed to a number
of factors. Demographic change since 2000, which includes births and deaths in a geographic area and migration in and out of a geographic
area, will have an impact on the resulting 2010 Census counts. Additionally, some changes in the Hispanic origin and race questions'
wording and format since Census 2000 could have influenced reporting patterns in the 2010 Census. Also, in Census 2000 an error in data
processing resulted in an overstatement of the Two or More Races population by about 1 million people (about 15 percent) nationally, which
almost entirely affected race combinations involving Some Other Race. Therefore, data users should assess observed changes in the Two or
More Races population between Census 2000 and the 2010 Census with caution.

Table 3. Population by Race Alone or in Combination and Hispanic or Latino Origin, for All Ages and for 18 Years and Over, for
Connecticut: 2000 and 2010
This table provides a state summary of the data included in the 2000 and the 2010 Redistricting Data Summary Files. Data are shown by age for the Hispanic or Latino
population, as well as for the 6 race alone or in combination categories. The concept “race alone or in combination” includes people who reported a single race alone (e.g.,
Asian) and people who reported that race in combination with one or more of the other major race groups (i.e., White, Black or African American, American Indian and
Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander, and Some Other Race). The concept “race alone or in combination,” therefore, represents the maximum number
of people who reported as that major race group, either alone, or in combination with another race(s). The sum of the 6 individual race "alone or in combination" categories
may add to more than the total population because people who reported more than one race were tallied in each race category. This table also shows the numeric and
percent change in the population by race and Hispanic origin between 2000 and 2010.

change since 2000, which includes births and deaths in a geographic area and migration in and out of a geographic area, will have an impact on the resulting 2010 Census

nationally, which almost entirely affected race combinations involving Some Other Race. Therefore, data users should assess observed changes in the Two or More Races
population between Census 2000 and the 2010 Census with caution.
The alone or in combination categories are tallies of responses rather than respondents. That is, the alone or in combination categories are not mutually exclusive.
Individuals who reported two races were counted in two separate and distinct alone or in combination race categories, while those who reported three races were counted in
three categories, and so on. For example, a respondent who indicated "White and Black or African American" was counted in the White alone or in combination category as
well as in the Black or African American alone or in combination category. Consequently, the sum of all alone or in combination categories equals the number of races
reported (i.e., responses), which exceeds the total population.

This table provides a state summary of the data included in the 2010 Redistricting Data Summary File. Data are shown for people who reported one race
and for people who reported two or more races. In addition, the table shows the population in each of the 15 specific combinations of two races. People
who reported two races constitute the vast majority of the Two or More Races population.
In addition to the 15 combinations of two races (e.g., White and Asian), there are 20 combinations of three races (e.g., White and Asian and Native
Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander), 15 combinations of four races, 6 combinations of five races, and 1 combination of 6 races. The redistricting file
includes data for the population in each of these 57 combinations of two or more races.
