Findings from a study involving 69 multiracial and multiethnic women show that respondents' racial identification varies considerably across question formats and that persons of mixed heritage prefer a racial identification question that provides them the opportunity to acknowledge their multiracial backgrounds. Many respondents also wanted to identify each of the racial groups constituting their backgrounds. (SLD)
