Question

Why is "Hispanic" separate from “Race”?

Answer

​We want to compare the demographic profile of those responding the survey to the demographic profile of the community as presented by the Census. In order to be able to do this we asked our race and ethnicity question the same way the Census does. The Census designates Hispanic as an ethnicity, not a race, hence it appears as its own question. Please be sure to answer both the Hispanic and race questions! This ensures we have the most complete information about everyone who responds to the survey. Your responses are anonymous and will be reported in group form only, so there is no way for us to know who you are and you cannot be identified individually.
