Most U.S. Census data, graphs, and tables currently use both the terms “Black” and “African American” for labeling. In recent years, there has been some debate about how this minority should be described. Among members of the group, no significant preference has been shown for either descriptor. For the purposes of this report, we have tried to use both descriptors in tandem whenever possible. To be concise, however, the term “black” is occasionally used as the broader term, meant to include African Americans as well as other individuals who identify as black but who do not have African origins.
