     5  collects demographic data as to the ancestry or ethnic origin  of  resi-
     6  dents  of  the state of New York shall allow multiple collection catego-
     7  ries to be selected.
     8    3. The data collected pursuant to the different collection  categories
     9  and  tabulations  described  in  subdivision one of this section, to the
    10  degree that the data quality is sufficient, shall be included  in  every
    11  demographic  report  on  ancestry  or ethnic origins of residents of the

    17  first, two thousand twenty-six. The data shall be made available to  the

    31  site, in the manner prescribed by this section.
    32    4.  The requirements of this section shall not apply to the department
    33  of labor, the division of  criminal  justice  services,  the  office  of
    34  mental health or the office of temporary and disability assistance until
    35  two years after this section shall have become a law.
