All figures come from the U.S. Census Bureau Report issued in June 2004
The Census Bureau defines ancestry as a person's ethnic origin, racial heritage, descent, or "roots," which may reflect their place of birth, place of birth of parents or ancestors, and ethnic identities that have evolved within the United States.
New Jersey 2000 population of New Jersey: 8,414,350 (2000 census)
Notes: Because of sampling error, the estimates in this table may not be significantly different from one another or from other ancestries not listed in this table.
People who reported two ancestries were included once in each category. Some groups correspond to groups identified separately in the race and Hispanic origin questions. The race item provides the primary source of data for White, Black, American Indian, Alaska Native, Asian groups, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander groups. The Hispanic-origin question is the primary identifier for Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, and other Hispanic groups.
