AMEA OMB 15 Model

AMEA PROPOSED REVISED OMB MINIMUM REPORTING STANDARDS WITH MULTIRACIAL, MULTIETHNIC CATEGORIES

[note: this is not how a form would appear to a respondent. This is merely the scheme, in two formats, by which the OMB insists all government agencies make racial/ethnic data reportable; that is, whatever methods or categories are employed by a public body, they must be able to report them in the following interchangeable formats]

I. Race and Ethnicity Separated Format

a. Race:

    1. American Indian/Alaskan Native
    2. Asian/Pacific Islander
    3. Black
    4. White
    5. Multiracial
             (persons of more than one of the listed groups only)
             For respondents in this category, specify all races that apply.

      1. American Indian/Alaskan Native
      2. Asian/Pacific Islander
      3. Black
      4. White
