Due to this diversity, the United States Office of Management and Budget's Statistical Policy Directive No. 15, entitled Race and Ethnic Standards for Federal Statis- tics and Administrative Reporting, separated the "Asian and Pacific Islander" category into two distinct and separate categories, now called "Asians" and "Native Hawaiians and Other Pacific Islanders," and these two distinct categories were used in the 2000 United States Census. The United States Census Bureau currently reports data for more than 20 different ethnicities within these two categories. (b) While Asian Americans as well as Native Hawaiians and other Pacif- ic Islanders are often misrepresented as a homogeneous group, they are an extremely diverse group, with ethnicities from over 30 different countries. Although Asian American as well as Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islander communities in this state share geographical and cultural commonalities, they also experience diverse social, educa- tional, health, and economic differences that are unique to their respective communities. (c) Existing state law requires state demographic data to be collected for Asian and some Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander ethnic groups. However, additional ethnic groups reported by the United States Census Bureau are not included that reflect changing demographics and intra- EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
