Therefore, the U.S. Census considers Arabs and Chaldeans as White. Wayne State University Office of the Provost, Center for Urban Studies. Arab American Economic Contribution Study. Arabs and Chaldeans have roughly the same percentage of college and advanced degrees as the general population, but a higher percentage has less than a high school degree. Those born in the U.S. have more education than either the general population or Arabs and Chaldeans born abroad. 28% of Arabs and Chaldeans do not have a high school degree, compared to 13% of the general population. 14% have college degrees and 9% report advanced degrees (17% and 10% respectively, in the overall population).

Income - Arabs and Chaldeans The U.S. Census Bureau must adhere to the 1997 Office of Management and Budget (OMB) standards on race and ethnicity which guide the Census Bureau in classifying written responses to the race question: white – A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa. Therefore, the U.S. Census considers Arabs and Chaldeans as white. Nearly two- thirds of Arabs and Chaldeans identify their race as “white,” while another third identify as “other.” Arabs and Chaldeans are disproportionately represented among the area’s wealthiest and poorest households. The relatively high number of Arabs and Chaldeans without a high school degree is reflected in income figures. Twenty-four percent claim an annual total family income of under $20,000, 6 percentage points higher than in the general population. On the other hand, 25 percent report total family incomes of $100,000 or more per year, compared to 16 percent in the larger population.
