Race As the result of revised standards for collecting data on race and ethnicity issued by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in 1997, Census 2000 was the first national census in which the instructions for respondents said, "Mark one or more races."
Race In 1990, five categories were used to tabulate race. In the 2000 Census, the race categories were broadened and, for the first time, multiple race selections were allowed. This resulted in six single race categories and 57 combinations of more than one race. As a result, comparisons by race between 1990 and 2000 must be considered through a range, between those who selected a single race and those who identified themselves as more than one race.
Black or African-American Trends Illinois Black or African American population in 1990 was 1,694, figures reflect a range between 1,876,875 (those who chose only Black or African-American) and 1,937,671 (those who chose Black or African-American only or in combination with any other race or races).

Asian Trends National trends show that emigrating Asians look for areas strong in technology and research with quality university environments, making Illinois particularly attractive to Asian immigration.
Conclusions The growth in Illinois population, particularly compared to other Midwestern states, is reflective of the strong economy, high quality of life, and outstanding universities and research centers available to Illinois residents. This larger and more diverse population also provides us with a broader workforce to help fuel continued economic growth. - Pam McDonough, DCCA Director
