  1. 6 Sum of "White" and "All minorities" does not equal 100% and the sum of "Black", "Hispanic", "Asian", and "Native American" does not equal the total for "All minorities" due to people who do not declare or who do not fall into these categories. "White" and "Black" figures for 2011 are markedly lower from previous years, as 16.1% of respondents placed themselves in a new "Other" category, which does not allow identification by ethnicity.
