Ethnicity

A person's ethnic origin, i.e. their national, racial, cultural, religious, linguistic, or other attributes that are perceived as characteristic of a distinct group of people. A person's ethnicity is essentially a matter of self-identification. A question on ethnic origin first appeared in the 1991 census, and was changed substantially for the 2001 census to reflect changes in the social perception of ethnicity.
