If an applicant identifies as having multiple ethnicities (e.g, African American and American Indian), how should it be reported in Adverse Impact statistics? Does each combination get its own category? Is it split between the two categories (e.g., ½ AA and ½ AI)? Is it recorded under one ethnicity or the other? If so, how is that decision made?
