Still, I like to endorse the suggestion to write in “SIKH” under “Some other race”. In addition, I recommend that all Punjabi speakers write in “PUNJABI-SPEAKING”. This will, hopefully, one day lead to separate codes and hence counts for “Sikhs” and also for “Punjabi speakers”. We need both. In 1990, and 2000 Urdu speakers (and perhps speakers of all indic languages) were added to Hindi speakers. The Census Bureau should provide a separate count of each major indic language like Punjabi, Bengali, Marathi and Gujarati.
