    Most large data sets solicit "ethnic" identification and "racial" identification in separate questions. We test the relative salience of these two identifications by exploring whether individuals who chose both a Latino "ethnic" label and a "racial" label on separate survey questions still chose both of these labels when they were given a single combined question about their racial and ethnic origins.
