Notes: The table shows a cross-tabulation of each partner's race. All parameters are gender-symmetric, so I show only the parameters below the diagonal. The reference category is an ethnoracially endogamous union. Each cell indicates the particular dummy variable that is applied to a given case. The terms measuring panethnicity are shown in bold. B/W = Black/White, A/W = Asian/White, A/B = Asian/Black, L/W = Latino/White, L/B = Latino/Black, L/A = Latino/Asian, PE-A = Panethnic Asian, PE-L = Panethnic Latino.
