1990 United States census
Approximately 16 percent of households received a "long form" of the 1990 census, which contained more than 100 questions. Full documentation on the 1990 census, including census forms and a procedural history, is available from the Integrated Public Use Microdata Series
It was the first census to designate "Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander" as a racial group separate from Asians.
This was the first census since 1890 in which Chicago
was not the second-largest city, having been overtaken by Los Angeles
. As of the 2020 census, Los Angeles is expected to remain the nation's second-largest city.
