Surname Selection - definition(s)

Surname Selection - For ethnic selection, the surname is a reasonable method for section of such easily identifiable groups as Irish, Italian (and hence Catholic), Jews and Spanish (actually Spanish-sounding names). Specialists have extended this type of coding to more esoteric groups such as German, English, Scotch, and Scandinavian.
