-College graduate percentages only have a precisely determinable((Precision has no formal meaning. It indicates how clearly determinable (distinguishable from zero) an influence on an outcome is. Precision is comparable to standard deviation. Low no precision indicates a high standard of deviation in which data points spread over a large range of value, signifying that the influence of one variable over another is relatively uncertain. High precision indicates a low standard of deviation in which data points hover around the mean, signifying that the influence of one variable over another is relatively certain.

 The percent of the population that is black does enhance food stamp recipiency, albeit modestly; this enhancement cannot be determined with great precision. The fraction of the population that is Hispanic, in contrast, has no precisely determined influence on food stamp recipiency (which is measured to be attenuating). The percent of the population that is black does enhance food stamp recipiency, albeit modestly; this enhancement cannot be determined with great precision.
