Notes: The underlying ethnicity data from the California Research Bureau defines “multi-racial” as legislators with parents of two different non-white ethnicities. Legislators with one white parent and one non-white parent are categorized as the non-white ethnicity. Census racial/ethnicity definitions vary from this definition.
