ABSTRACT

 AGE, SEX, RACE, AND HISPANIC ORIGIN INFORMATION FROM THE
 1990 CENSUS: A COMPARISON OF CENSUS RESULTS WITH RESULTS WHERE
 AGE AND RACE HAVE BEEN MODIFIED

 The accompanying tables provide age, sex, race, and Hispanic
 origin data from the 1990 census; as well as similar information
 from a special census file where the age and race data have been
 "modified" to meet the needs of many users of census data.
 Essentially the race statistics were modified to be consistent
 with the classification used in data sets other than the census,
 while the age data were adjusted to correspond with the April 1,
 1990 census date.  These "modified" data are consistent with the
 counts of the 1990 census as enumerated.  More detailed
 information for smaller geographic units should be released on
 computer tapes and diskettes later this year by the Data Users
 Services Division.
