The labels you'll find here represent the folk terms for various groups most often used in the Philadelphia area by people when they are asked to self-identify, a question that makes some people squirm. If you've interviewed someone you know self-identifies as, e.g., "Italian" (="Italian-American"), you can enter that; otherwise you'd probably put "Caucasian". Many people whose families immigrated from Southeast or East Asian countries will refer to themselves as "Asian", but people whose families came from Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, or Sri Lanka will self-identify as "South Asian", which is the reason for those labels. If you have no "best guess" on ethnicity, put "other". But give it your best shot, because it is clear that as far as short-a pronunciation is concerned, there are differences that relate to the different social experiences of members of different ethnic groups, and we want to be in a position to do the best analysis we can of our class results.
