U.S. Census Bureau

This interactive infographic timeline is a visual representation that captures race and ethnic categories used in the U.S. Decennial Census from 1790 to 2010. The visualized race and ethnic categories for each decade were developed from two main sources: (1) U.S. Census Bureau Decennial Census Questionnaires and (2) a 2009 research article, “Measurement of Race and Ethnicity in Changing Multicultural America,” by Karen Humes and Howard Hogan (U.S. Census Bureau).
