Who’s White & Who’s Not

If Canada Used American Racial Categories

The US Census Bureau counts people by race:  White, Black, Asian, and so on.

Statistics Canada counts people by “visible-minority status” – we don’t like to mention words like “race”, or White up here.

The other day I found myself wondering, (that) if Canada used American racial categories, how would the demographics of the two countries compare?

[This] table shows how Canadian visible-minority categorizations match to US racial groups. The mapping from one to the other is not precise. In the US, information on race is gathered from the question shown on the right.  [ELN Editor's note: To view the tables, please click the links.]

There is no category for Arab or West Asian, and it’s not clear how people of these origins answered the Census question.

In 2010, a group of Arab and Persian-Americans launched a “check it right” campaign, urging people to “check the ‘other’ box” on the census form and write in their true ancestry.”

Unfortunately, this was a somewhat futile gesture, as according to the US census documentation write-in entries such as “Lebanese, Arab, Moroccan, or Caucasianare coded as White. As far as I can make out, unless an Iranian or Afghani identifies themselves as “Asian” (which some might have done), they are included in the White count.

Latin Americans provide another challenge. Many have some mix of European, Aboriginal and African ancestry. The best that I could do was to assume that Canada’s Latin American population has the same [admixture] of Whites, Aboriginal people and Blacks … as the US Hispanic population, and allocate Latin Americans across the appropriate categories.

The final result of these calculations is shown in this table.

The “White” figure for Canada is most comparable to the US “single race” figure, whereas the figures for American Indians, Asians and Blacks, are best compared to the US “including multiple races” figure — as they include people with European ancestry.

It’s important to bear in mind that (Canada’s) National Household Survey was a voluntary survey, and its coverage of various demographic groups appears to be somewhat uneven, the numbers should be interpreted with care.  [Updated]

There are no big surprises here. Canada is a Whiter country than the US. We have a much larger Asian population, and a much smaller Black population. Interestingly, Aboriginal Canadians are a substantially larger share of Canada’s population than American Indians are of the US population.  >Source
