Farley finds fewer Americans self-identify as multiracial

a PSC In The News reference, 2007

"Fewer Americans call themselves multiracial" - USA Today. 05/03/2007.

The share of Americans who identify themselves as multiracial has shrunk this decade, a trend that defies expectations in an increasingly diverse nation.

Less than 2 percent of the U.S. population checked off more than one race in the Census Bureau's 2005 American Community Survey (ACS). In two Census surveys in 2000, more than 2 percent did.

"There's no overall explanation" for the drop, says Reynolds Farley, research scientist at the University of Michigan's Institute for Social Research who analyzed the trend.
