Summary
This volume is derived from a September 2000 conference held at the Levy Economics Institute, bringing together scholars from sociology, demography, political science, history, and American studies, adn government officials from several important federal agencies, to debate the past and future of counting and classifying Americans by race and to assess the implications of the new multi-race response option included in the 2000 census. Nineteen contributions are arranged into sections exploring what we know from counting multiracials, the significance of these findings, the possibilities of a multiracial future, and the politics of race numbers
