This panel combines the two questions, lists examples for all OMB groups, has write-in areas for each OMB group and “Other,” and retains all of the checkbox response categories on the 2010 Census control panel. A simple instruction is used that directs respondents to mark one or more boxes and to write in a specific race or origin.
