Race and ethnicity information page

Race and Ethnicity definitions evolve over time. Currently, OFM race products use the Federal 1997 Office of Management and Budget (OMB) standard for reporting races. However, on March 28, 2024, the OMB revised federal standards for the reporting of race and ethnicity data through Statistical Policy Directive 15 (SPD 15). OMB has posted information about the new standard and the process used to review and update the standard at this website: https://spd15revision.gov/.
