According to Wikipedia, there has been constant debate over the classification of ethnic groups. Membership of a particular group tends to be associated with shared cultural heritage, ancestry, history, homeland, language or dialect. Consequently, by the nature of the concept, ethnic groups also tend to be divided into subgroups. These subgroups may themselves be or not be identified as independent ethnic groups, depending on the source consulted.

Drilling Down by Subgroup

There are definitely some offers that can be directed by ethnicity. For example, a business selling kosher food might want to mail only to Jewish households. Furthermore, a company selling discounted telephone service to southeast Asia may want to select a list of Vietnamese households. A catholic church may only want to mail to known catholic households. Hence, we are narrowing down the prospect universe by ethnic household composition.  For that reason, if these groups are too broad, you might want to look at our  list selection options by ethnic detail.
