As a European, I am confused about the use of names for ethnicities in the US. The background of my question is academic (I usually work with quantitative data on ethnicity on other continents, mostly about self-determination organizations and parties) so it does not matter how poeple self-identify. For example, I gathered that only certain people are considered to be native Americans. But are terms like "Asian American" colloquial, or does it refer to the Asian continent? What about people from Hawaii or Puerto Rico?
