Census 2000 Summary Sample Data Profiles
The Census Bureau released computer files containing
detailed tabulations of the questions asked of a sampling of
census respondents (the sample or long-form questions). This
includes information about income, poverty, education,
employment, travel to work, ancestry, language spoken at
home, housing conditions, etc. for all geographic areas in
the state down to the block group.
Please Note: All data are based on a sample of the population and housing units throughout the State. Thus the results are subject to sampling errors and may differ from the 100 Percent counts for these areas.
The Census Bureau has announced that they will not revise
the data included in American FactFinder or any report
from the 2000 census. Users of this system need to
look at the documents listed above for revised data.
A series of profiles have been produced from these files for the standard geographic units of the state, counties, cities, towns, villages, Census Designated Places (CDPs) – which are unincorporated village-like areas -- and American Indian Reservations.
Profiles for metropolitan areas (as they were defined in January 2000), Congressional Districts of the 106th Congress, and approximations of ZIP codes (known as ZIP Code Tabulation Areas or ZCTAs) will be produced in the near future.
We do not have the information needed to produce these profiles for school districts. The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) is expected to release those sometime during 2003.
Primary Profiles provide a general overview of each geographic area’s population showing the most commonly requested general distributions and limited cross-tabulations of all general population topics covered in this dataset.
Secondary Profiles contain frequently, but less commonly, requested information about the residents of each area.
Housing Profiles provide a general overview of each geographic area’s housing showing the most commonly requested information about the general housing topics covered in Census 2000.
Income Profiles contain household income distributions by race and age of the householder, information about sources of income, earnings by age and sex, and related data.
Employment Profiles contain the number of people working, looking for work, unemployment rate, the industries and occupations of people at work broken down by sex.
Education Profiles contain information about educational attainment and school enrollment.
Poverty Profiles contain information about poverty status by family structure, employment history, age, race and Hispanic Latino origin, sex, and selected sources of income.
Disability Profiles contain information on general types of disabilities by age, race, Hispanic origin, sex, employment status and educational attainment.
Household and Family Profiles contain information on marital status, household structure and family types.
Language Profiles contain information about language spoken at home, linguistic isolation, and place of birth and citizenship status for the foreign-born population.
Ancestry Profiles contain detailed information about ancestry and the foreign-born population’s places of birth.
Migration Profiles contain information about residence in 1995, place of birth, year of entry into the United States, and citizenship status.
Transportation Profiles contain
information about means of travel to work, travel time to
work, and time leaving home to go to work.

Zip Code Tabulation Areas
ZCTAs -- provide data for approximations of ZIP codes. These files are grouped by the first three digits of the ZCTA and contain all five-digit ZCTAs within that three-digit area. More information about ZCTAs can be found on the Census Bureau’s website.
