... socially constructed race, our study takes into account both genetic bio-ancestry and social context in understanding racial classification. This article accomplishes two objectives. First, our research establishes geographic genetic bio-ancestry as a component of racial classification. Second, it shows...

...). Our empirical analysis that establishes the general correspondence between bio-ancestry and race classification has a number of important and unique features. Using two social science data sources (ROOM and Add Health) that are representative of the U.S. population, we conducted a close examination of...
