Abstract

Demographic data for nonwhites in the United States are often assumed to be of low quality. Problems arise because of undercount and underregistration and because individuals included in the census do not always provide accurate information. This paper describes some of the major errors which confound data for nonwhites and attempts to measure the impact that these errors have for various demographic rates.
