For example, if the individual claims to be half Eskimo you could enter 1/2 or 50/100. The system does not place restrictions on the sum of all of the ratios together. For example, if you enter more than one ethnic group for the individual on the Ethnicity page, you can enter different percentages here on the detail page for each ethnic group. You could enter 50/100 Eskimo and 75/100 Cherokee for a total of 125/100.
