Arab percentage[edit]

As of the 2000 Census, major ancestry groups reported by Hamtramck residents include:

· Polish - 26% · Black or African American - 15% · Yugoslavian - 12% · Arab - 11% · Asian Indian - 7% · Arab/Arabic - 6% · Bangladeshi - 10% · Ukrainian - 4% · German - 3% · Albanian - 3% · Other Arab - 3% · Irish - 2% · Italian - 2% · Russian - 2% · English - 1% · French (except Basque) - 1% · Lebanese - 1% · Pakistani - 1% · Scottish - 1% · Macedonian - 1% · Mexican - 1% · Iraqi - 1%

This list treats "Arab," "Arab/Arabic" and "Other Arab" as three separates. Can I assume that this is a mistake? I'm guessing that the first "Arab" listing, which is at 11%, actually is supposed to include the other two. I don't know that for a fact, though. 68.40.64.186 04:43, 21 March 2007 (UTC)


I think "Arab" and "Other Arab" mean different things but what's the difference between Arab and Arab/Arabic? I can't confirm those numbers with the US Census, we should probably update them with better info. Dr_Cherry 16:26, 21 March 2007 (UTC)


Macedonians are Yugoslavian why are they seprate...And Most of the Yugoslavs in Hamtramck are Bosniaks(bosnians)....

"largest of its kind in the world"?? some joker wrote that, right? i mean, sxsw hasn't always been such a corporate affair, but surely that's a ridiculous statement. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.201.15.244 (talk) 03:16, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
