Race/Ethnicity Question

Anonymous - Mar 10, 2016
Back to Ask the Experts

We are in the process of implementing a new applicant tracking system and I was asked if we would like to ask the race/ethnicity question in 2 parts. For example, question 1 asks for Ethnicity (Hispanic/Latino, Not Hispanic/Latino, Choose Not to Identify) and then question 2 asks for Race (all race categories).

I would prefer to keep it as one question for Race/Ethnicity and then include all ethnicities and race categories. Is this ok or should it be broken out into 2 questions?
