Note: Use caution when comparing estimates from the 2005 American Community Survey (ACS) with the 2000 Census.
  • Unlike the Census, ACS estimates only cover areas with more than 65,000 people.
  • Unlike the Census, ACS estimates do not include people living in institutions.
  • Unlike the Census, each ACS estimate has a published margin of error. We only report estimates when the margin of error is less than +/- five percent. More information on ACS margins of error is available here.

Note: Hispanic ethnicity is a separate data category from race. This number should not be added to race totals.
