NOTES: Net undercount is the difference between the estimate (A.C.E. or PES) and the census, divided by the estimate. Minus sign (−) indicates a net overcount. For 2000, total population is the household population; for 1990, it is the household population plus the noninstitutional group quarters population. See Appendix E (Table E.3) for definitions of race/ethnicity domains;—, not estimated.

a In 1990 includes Pacific Islanders.

b In the original A.C.E. and PES, children ages 0–17 were a single category.
