Census of a Village (Posted on 2006-07-06) Difficulty: 4 of 5
This information below comes from the 2000 Census of Kaskaskia, Illinois.

There were 9 people, 4 households, and 3 families residing in the village.
There were 5 housing units. There were 4 households out of which none had children under the age of 18 living with them.
The racial makeup of the village was 77.78% White, 11.11% Pacific Islander, 11.11% from other races, 22.22% Hispanic or Latino
50.0% were married couples living together.
25.0% had a female householder with no husband present.
25.0% were non-families.
25.0% had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older.
The average household size was 2.25 and the average family size was 2.67.
In the village, the population was spread out with 22.2% under the age of 18, 11.1% from 18 to 24, 11.1% from 25 to 44, 22.2% from 45 to 64, 33.3% who were 65 years of age or older
See if you can make an identity of each of the nine people in the village. This includes ethnicity, age, single/married, etc...

I assume that there can be more than one solution.

Interesting imagination, Jygm.  Except for a difference in identities by racial type, I arrived much to the same probable conclusion. 

I had Sally Cheesecake as a Hispanic/Latino who had, because their father was White, identified her twin sons, Jackie and Bobby as both White and Hispanic/Latino;  the Fishsticks' and Greenbeans -- Don, Carmelita, Chip, Angus and Ethel, were designated White, and Old Man Taquito was the Pacific Islander (but with a name like Taquito it is no wonder why Carmelita thinks he's Puerto Rican).
