Explanatory Information

Appointees and applicants are self-reporting and do not have to answer if they choose not to. Appointees may report having more than one ethnicity. These individuals are counted in each reported category.

Footnotes
The Governor's office's current definition of "Native American" is provided on the demographic disclosure as: "A person having origins in any of the original peoples of North America, and who maintains cultural identification through tribal affiliation or community." Accordingly, individuals identifying as Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander are included within this category.
