AOIC Definition

AOIC Definition


MN WIC Program

The concept race "alone or in combination" includes people who reported a single race alone (e.g., Asian) and people who reported that race in combination with one or more of the other major race groups (e.g., White, Black or African American, American Indian and Alaska Native). The concept "race alone or in combination," therefore, represents the maximum number of people who reported as that race group, either alone or in combination with one or more additional race(s). The sum of the individual race "alone-or-in-combination" categories may add to more than the total population because people who reported more than one race were tallied in each race category. Locations with larger numbers of individuals choosing the "multiple races category", will find a more complete description of their population in the AOIC reports.
