I'm not certain what variable you are using to calculate these numbers, so it is a bit difficult to troubleshoot exactly what is going on here. I just performed a check using the variable HISPAN and I'm not able to replicate the numbers you've reported above. Additionally, the Hispanic vs. Non-Hispanic population estimates seem relatively consistent over time. Let us know if you continue to think there is an error in the data.

You'd have to explain:

1. what you were expecting,

2. where you see the inconsistencies,

3. show the code you used to produce the listing above.


Optionally, that listing (which is difficult to read) be better converted to a table.


Sorry for a non-answer.
