Specifies the client's race: - ALASKA NATIVE (ALEUT, ESKIMO, INDIAN): Origins in any of the original people of Alaska. - AMERICAN INDIAN (OTHER THAN ALASKA NATIVE): Origins in any of the original people of North America and South America (including Central America) and who maintain cultural identification through tribal affiliation or community attachment. - ASIAN OR PACIFIC ISLANDER: Origins in any of the original people of the Far East, the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, or the Pacific Islands. - BLACK OR AFRICAN AMERICAN: Origins in any of the black racial groups of Africa. - WHITE: Origins in any of the original people of Europe, North Africa, or the Middle East. - ASIAN: Origins in any of the original people of the Far East, the Indian subcontinent, or Southeast Asia, including for example, Cambodia, China, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippine Islands, Thailand, and Vietnam. - OTHER SINGLE RACE: Use this category for instances in which the client is not classified in any category above or whose origin group, because of area custom, is regarded as a racial class distinct from the above categories. (Do not use this category for clients indicating multiple races.) - TWO OR MORE RACES: Use this code when the State data system allows multiple race selection and more than one race is indicated. - NATIVE HAWAIIAN OR OTHER PACIFIC ISLANDER: Origins in any of the original peoples of Hawaii, Guam, Samoa, or other Pacific Islands. Guidelines: If the State does not distinguish between American Indian and Alaska Native, code both as 02, American Indian. States that can separate "Asian" and "Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander" should use codes 13 and 23 for those categories. States that cannot make the separation should use the combined code 03 until the separation becomes possible. Once a state begins using codes 13 and 23, code 03 should no longer be used by that state. States are asked to convert to the new categories when possible.
