People Reporting Single Ancestry
Includes all people who reported only one ethnic group such as "German." Also included in this category are people with only a multiple-term response such as "Scotch-Irish" who are assigned a single code because they represent one distinct group. For example, in this type of table, the count for "German" would be interpreted as "The number of people who reported that German was their only ancestry."
