“I AM CARIBBEAN” CENSUS AWARENESS CAMPAIGN

CaribLifeCentral.com is Encouraging Caribbean-Americans to Identify Their Nationality on the 2010 Census



Historically, Caribbean-Americans have been underrepresented in the US Census,” explained Sheldon Mundle, president of CaribLifeCentral.com. “This marginalized our contributions to American society and adversely affected our community in terms of quality of education, business investments, and advertising dollars”

“In question 9 of the Census form, individuals are allowed to identify themselves with multiple racial origins,” explained Mundle. “We are encouraging people of Caribbean ancestry to exercise this option by also selecting ‘Some other race’ and writing in their nationality.” During the 2000 Census, 1.8 million people identified themselves as West Indian, with the highest populations claiming (in order) Jamaica, Haiti, and Trinidad.
