FILE - In this March 15, 2010, file photo, copies of the 2010 Census forms are seen during a news conference in Phoenix to kickoff a national drive as Census forms are mailed to everyone. To keep pace with rapidly changing notions of race, the Census Bureau wants to make broad changes to its surveys that would treat "Hispanic" as a distinct category regardless of race, end use of the term "Negro" and offer new ways to identify Middle Easterners. The recommendations released Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2012, stem from new government research on the best ways to count the nation's demographic groups. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin, File)
