NOTE: The revised 1997 Office of Management and Budget (OMB) standards on race and ethnicity were used to classify persons into racial groups. Under these standards, persons could select one or more of five racial groups: White, Black or African American, American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, or Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander. Those reporting more than one race were classified as "Two or more races. For 2003 and after, when separate reporting was possible, respondents who reported being Asian or Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander were combined for continuity purposes. Also, beginning in 2003, those in a given racial category represent those reporting only that race. Data on race and Hispanic origin are collected separately. Persons of Hispanic origin may be of any race. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding. In 2013, about 10.6 percent of the young adults who were neither enrolled in school nor working were married with their own children and 16.7 percent were unmarried with their own children.
