Demographics

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Demographics data come from a number of sources. The United States Census Bureau is a significant source of demographic data, and data are gathered from:

 

- Decennial Census conducted for the United States in the years 2010 (Census 2010), 2000 (Census 2000)

- Intercensal population estimates (Population Estimates)

- Small Area Income and Poverty Estimates (SAIPE)

- Current Population Survey (CPS)

- American Community Survey (ACS)

- International Database

 

2010 Census population by race/ethnicity are from the 2010 Census Redistricting Data (Public Law 94-171) Summary File, U.S. Census Bureau. The race categories for Census 2010 are defined as follows:

White–A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa. It includes people who indicate their race as "white" or report entries such as Irish, German, Italian, Lebanese, Arab, Moroccan, or Caucasian.

Black or African American–A person having origins in any of the Black racial groups in Africa. It includes people who indicate their race as "Black, African Am., or Negro" or report entries such as African America, Kenyan, Nigerian, or Haitian.

American Indian or Alaska Native–A person having origins in any of the peoples of North and South America (including Central America) and who maintain tribal affiliation or community attachment. This category includes people who indicate their race as "American Indian or Alaska Native" or report entries such as Navajo, Blackfeet, Inupiat, Yup’ik, or Central American Indian groups or South American Indian groups

Asian – A persons having origins in any of the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, or the Indian subcontinent including, for example, Cambodia, China, Indian, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippine Islands, Thailand, and Vietnam. It includes people who indicate their race as "Asian Indian," "Chinese," "Filipino," "Korean," "Japanese," "Vietnamese," and "Other Asian" or provide other detailed Asian responses.

Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander – A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Hawaii, Guam, Samoa, or other Pacific Islands. It includes people who indicate their race as "Native Hawaiian," "Guamanian or Chamorro," "Samoan," and "Other Pacific Islander" or provide other detailed Pacific Islander responses.

Some Other Race (one race) – Includes all other responses not included in "White," "Black or African American," "American Indian or Alaska Native," "Asian," and "Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander" race categories described above. Respondents reporting entries such as multiracial, mixed, interracial, or a Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish group (for example, Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, or Spanish) in response to the race question are included in this category.

Two or More Races – People may choose to provide two or more races either by checking two or more race response check boxes, by providing multiple responses, or by some combination of check boxes and other responses. The race response categories shown on the questionnaire are collapsed into five minimum race groups identified by OMB and the Census Bureau’s "Some Other Race" category. "Two or More Races" refers to combinations of two or more of the following race categories:

White

Black or African American

American Indian or Alaska Native

Asian

Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander

Some Other Race

The federal government considers race and Hispanic origin to be two separate and distinct concepts. The data on Hispanic or Latino population were derived from answers to a question that was asked of all people. The terms "Hispanic," "Latino," and "Spanish" are used interchangeably. Origin can be viewed as the heritage, nationality group, lineage, or country of birth of the person or the person’s parents or ancestors before arrival in the United States. People who identify their origins as Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish may be of any race.

When comparing 2010 Census data to prior years, it is important to note that the questionnaires have changed over time. For detailed information regarding differences between the 2010 Census and earlier ones, refer to the census website http://www.census.gov/.

Note:

1.Total Census Population (F04530-10) will equal the sum of White, Black/African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian, Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander, Some Other Race and Two or more Races.

2.Total Population, One Race (F13325-10) will equal the sum of White, Black/African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian, Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander and Some Other Race.

3.Individuals of Hispanic Origin may be of any race and are included in the counts by race for White , Black/African American , American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian, Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander, Some Other Race and Two or more Races. Therefore, when calculating total population, Hispanic Origin should not be included in the calculation.

4.Non-Hispanic/Latino Population will equal the sum of White Non-Hispanic, Black/African American Non-Hispanic, American Indian/Alaska Native Non-Hispanic, Asian Non-Hispanic, Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander Non-Hispanic, Some Other Race Non-Hispanic and Two or more Races Non-Hispanic.

5.Data are included  for Puerto Rico for the 2010 Census population.

6.2010 Census Population data included  for Guam are from the 2010 Census of Population and Housing, Guam Summary File, U.S. Census Bureau using the Bureau’s American FactFinder.

7.Total Census Population (F04530-10) for Guam will equal the sum of White, Black/African American, Asian, Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander, Some Other Race, Hispanic/Latino, and Two or more Races. Some Other Race includes American Indian/Alaska Native which is not carried separately. Note Hispanic/Latino Population is included in the Guam’s total population unlike all other U.S., Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Island population counts where Hispanic/Latino is an origin and can be any race.

8.Total Population, One Race (F13325-10) for Guam will equal the sum of White, Black/African American, Asian, Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander, Some Other Race and Hispanic/Latino.

9.2010 Census Population data included  for the U.S. Virgin Islands are from the 2010 Census of Population and Housing, U.S. Virgin Islands Summary File, U.S. Census Bureau using the Bureau’s American FactFinder.

2010 Census age, race and gender data are from the 2010 Census of Population and Housing: Summary File 1 (SF1). Individuals of Hispanic/Latino Origin are included in the counts by race (White, Black/African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander, Some Other Race and Two or more Races). Therefore when calculating a total, Hispanic/Latino Origin should not be included in the calculations. The exception to this is any White Non-Hispanic field, which excludes individuals of Hispanic/Latino Origin. Decennial census data for the U.S. Island Areas (American Samoa, Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands) for the year 2010 come from the territory-specific Census 2010 summary files.

2010 Census population by detailed ethnicity are from the 2010 Census of Population and Housing: Summary File 1 (SF1).

Note:

1.Hispanic or Latino fields are by specific origin. Origin can be viewed as the heritage, nationality group, lineage or country of birth of the person or the person’s parents or ancestors before their arrival in the United States. People who identify their origin as Spanish, Hispanic, or Latino may be of any race.

2.The sum of Hispanic/Latino Origin-Costa Rican, Guatemalan, Honduran, Nicaraguan, Panamanian, Salvadoran and Other Central American Population equals Hispanic/Latino Origin-Central American Population.

3.The sum of Hispanic/Latino Origin-Argentinean, Bolivian, Chilean, Colombian, Ecuadorian, Paraguayan, Peruvian, Uruguayan, Venezuelan and Other South American Population equals Hispanic/Latino Origin-South American Population.

4.The sum of Hispanic Origin-Spaniard, Spanish, Spanish American and All Other Hispanic/Latino equals Hispanic/Latino Origin-Other Hispanic Population.

5.Data are carried for Hoonah-Angoon Census Area, AK (02105), Skagway Municipality, AK (02230), Prince of Wales-Hyder Census Area, AK (02198), Petersburg Census Area, AK (02195) and Wrangell City and Borough, AK (02275).

6.Data are included for Puerto Rico.

7.Data included  for Guam are from the 2010 Census of Population and Housing, Guam Summary File, U.S. Census Bureau using the Bureau’s American FactFinder.

8.Hispanic/Latino Population is included in the Guam’s total population fields unlike all other U.S., Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Island population counts where Hispanic/Latino is an origin and can be any race.

9.Data included for the U.S. Virgin Islands are from the 2010 Census of Population and Housing, U.S. Virgin Islands Summary File, U.S. Census Bureau using the Bureau’s American FactFinder

10.Hispanic/Latino Origin-All Other Hispanic Population for the U.S. Virgin Islands is composed of people whose origins are from Cuba, Spain, and Spanish-speaking Central or South American countries. It also includes general origin responses such as “Latino” or “Hispanic."

Decennial census data for the U.S. Island Areas (American Samoa, Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands) for the year 2000 come from the territory-specific Census 2000 summary files.

Census data for the freely associated states (Federated States of Micronesia, Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau) come from their respective censuses:

 

- Federated States of Micronesia 2000 Census

- Republic of the Marshall Islands 1999 Census

Census Sources

 

Census 2000

Data regarding the demographic makeup of the female and minority populations were available at the county level and presented few limitations in consistency and availability. Note that persons of Hispanic (or Hispanic/Latino) origin may be of any race. Total population is equal to the sum of White, Black/African American, American Indian and Alaskan Native and Asian/Pacific Islander with the exception of Census 2000 data and 2001-2007 Census population estimates. For Census 2000 data and 2001-2007 Census population estimates, total population is the sum of White, Black/African American, American Indian/Alaskan Native, Asian, Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander, Other single race, and Two or more races. Also note that Census revised race definitions effective with the 2000 Census to provide additional race specificity and to permit reporting more than one race; as such, there will be some definitional differences when comparing earlier Census estimates with the 2000 Census figures. Additional information and details regarding the Census data can be found at http://www.census.gov

NCHS

2000-2012 Bridge Populations are from the NCHS Bridged-race populations. The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), in collaboration with the US Bureau of the Census initially created the Bridged-race population estimates for April 1, 2000. The estimates are the result of bridging the 31 race categories from Census 2000 to the four race categories used by many data systems, including vital statistics. The Census race categories are those specified by the 1997 Office of Management and Budget (OMB) directive on the standards for race and ethnicity data collection whereas the four race categories are based on the 1977 version of the race and ethnicity data collection standards. In all cases, Hispanic is considered an ethnicity and is therefore independent of race data. Bridge population figures are those used to calculate the health status indicators within the system because the state and national data reporting systems do not currently collect data for multiracial categories.

 

Rates calculated for year 2000 data used the April 1, 2000 Bridge-race population estimates. Rates calculated using data for 2001, 2002 and 2003 years used the NCHS Vintage 2003 Bridged-race population estimates, based on July 1 population estimates. Rates calculated for year 2004 use the NCHS Vintage 2004 Bridged-race population estimates, based on July 1 population estimates. Rates calculated for year 2005 and 2006 use the NCHS Vintage 2006 Bridged-race population estimates, based on July 1 population estimates. Rates calculated for year 2007 use the NCHS Vintage 2007 Bridged-race population estimates, based on July 1 population estimates. Rates calculated for year 2008 use the NCHS Vintage 2008 Bridged-race population estimates, based on July 1 population estimates. Rates calculated for year 2009 use the NCHS Vintage 2009 Bridged-race population estimates, based on July 1 population estimates. NCHS notes that although efforts were made to use the best available data and methods to produce the bridged estimates, the modeling process introduces error into the estimates. The potential for error will be greatest for the smallest population groups, particularly the smaller race groups and county level estimates. More information on the bridge populations can be found at http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/bridged_race.htm.

Life Expectancy county-level data are from:

Life expectancies for the 5 Boroughs of New York City were calculated as a single entity because borough-specific mortality estimates were not available for the entire period. Due to multiple changes in county/census divisions, life expectancy for Alaska has been estimated as a single entity, assigned to all counties in the State.

A substantial number of counties, but not all counties, were grouped with one or more other counties in the same state and their data "merged" in order to estimate life expectancy. Note: The resulting life expectancy estimate for each such group of counties is displayed as the same value for each of the component counties.
