Finding the information you need within long rows of numbers is a tricky task, even under the best of conditions. The task has become harder since the Census Bureau began using a new method for providing important neighborhood data like income, poverty, and educational attainment that is averaged over five years and has large margins of error.
For this reason, we’ve added a variety of notes to these data tables, as well as links to the definition for each indicator. Our aim is to explain details of the data that are sometimes misleading, and also to point you to additional information that you may find useful for program planning and grantwriting.
