a: Includes American Indians and Alaska Natives; Asians, Native Hawaiians, and Other Pacific Islanders; and persons of two or more races.
b: Excludes persons of Hispanic or Latino origin.

*: Number of women identifying as "other" not provided separately until 2012, so for 2000 and 2010-2011, this figure was derived by subtracting the number of non-Latina whites, non-Latina blacks, and Latinas from the total. As a result, the imprisonment rate is not available.
