For those of you who did not get the long form for the census, it has two
questions about family background (for each person in the household):
Q. 6 is "What is this person's race?" Choices are: White, Black/African
Am./Negro, American Indian/Alaska Native (print name of tribe), Asian
Indian, Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Other Asian (print
race), native Hawaiian, Guamanian/Chamorro, Samoan, Other Pacific Islander
(print race), and Some other race (print race).
Q. 10 is "What is this person's ancestry or ethnic origin?" ("For
example: Italian, Jamaican, Afrian Am., Cambodian, Cape Verdean, Norwegian,
Dominican, French Canadian, Haitian, Korean, Lebanese, Polish, Nigerian,
Mexican, Taiwanese, Ukranian, and so on."}
You can see >from the above that "Jewish" or "Jewish-Ashkenazic" would be the
most reasonable response for a Galizianer to put on Question 10, but it's
not clear that the Census Bureau would accept that. Maybe they need to be
lobbied by some "official" organization?
