Definitions: Total number of persons for all ages by race/ethnicity.

Data presented for 2010 through 2016 are from Vintage 2016 Bridged-Race Postcensal Population Estimates, which are produced under a collaborative arrangement between the National Center for Health Statistics and the U. S. Census Bureau. Each year the post-2010 for these estimates are revised. Therefore, data presented here may differ from previously published estimates. Figures for 1990, 2000, and 2010 represent revised population estimates for July 1, 1990, July 1, 2000, and July1, 2010 - not actual Census counts from April 1, 1990, April 1, 2000, and April 1, 2010.

Definitions: Estimated number of children from birth to 20 years 11 months by race/ethnicity.

Data presented for 2010 through 2016 are from Vintage 2016 Bridged-Race Postcensal Population Estimates, which are produced under a collaborative arrangement between the National Center for Health Statistics and the U. S. Census Bureau. Each year the post-2010 for these estimates are revised. Therefore, data presented here may differ from previously published estimates. Figures for 1990, 2000, and 2010 represent revised population estimates for July 1, 1990, July 1, 2000, and July1, 2010 - not actual Census counts from April 1, 1990, April 1, 2000, and April 1, 2010.

Data Source: National Center for Health Statistics. Vintage 2016 postcensal estimates of the resident
population of the United States (April 1, 2010, July 1, 2010-July 1, 2016), by year,
county, single-year of age (0, 1, 2, .., 85 years and over), bridged race, Hispanic origin,
and sex. Prepared under a collaborative arrangement with the U.S. Census Bureau.

Definitions: Median annual income for families with own children under age 18 living in the household.  "Own children" include the householder's (head of the household) children by birth, marriage, or adoption.  The median income is the dollar amount that divides the income distribution into two equal groups--half with income above the median, half with income below it.

Data Source: U.S. Census Bureau; American Community Survey 5-year estimates, 2006-2010, 2007-2011, 2008-2012, 2009-2013, 2010-2014, and 2011-2015, Table B19125.

Footnotes: Although overlapping 5-year time periods are shown for this indicator, the Census Bureau suggests comparing periods that do not overlap—for example, comparing 2006–2010 estimates with 2011–2015 estimates. This means waiting longer to identify a trend. However, in areas undergoing fundamental shifts in the size or composition of the population, change may be so substantial that it will be obvious after only a few years. For more information on making comparisons with ACS multi-year estimates, see Appendix 1 of ACS General Handbook.

Definitions: Poverty Thresholds - The income cutoffs used by the Census Bureau to determine the poverty status of families and unrelated individuals include a set of 48 thresholds arranged in a two dimensional matrix consisting of family size (from one person to nine or more persons) cross-classified by presence and number of family members under 18 years old (from no children present to 8 or more children present). The total income of each family or unrelated individual in the sample was tested against the appropriate poverty threshold to determine the poverty status of that family or unrelated individual.

Footnotes: Although overlapping 5-year time periods are shown for this indicator, the Census Bureau suggests comparing periods that do not overlap—for example, comparing 2006–2010 estimates with 2011–2015 estimates. This means waiting longer to identify a trend. However, in areas undergoing fundamental shifts in the size or composition of the population, change may be so substantial that it will be obvious after only a few years.

Non-Hispanic Black and African American is not available from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey Summary tables. Therefore, race/ethnic groups represented in this table are not mutually exclusive. The category of white includes only non-Hispanic white.

Definitions: A family is a group of two people or more (one of whom is designated as the householder) related by birth, marriage, or adoption and residing together; all such people (including related subfamily members) are considered as members of one family.
Children under age 18 who live with their own single parent either in a family or subfamily.  Single-parent families may include cohabiting couples and do not include children living with married stepparents. Children who live in group quarters (for example, institutions, dormitories, or group homes) are not included in this calculation.

Data Source: U.S. Census Bureau, Census 2010, Table P40.

Footnotes:  This measure is presented separately using two different sources.  The decennial census, which reflects an population count every ten years, and the American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year Estimates, which are updated annually and reflect an average over a five-year period.  Therefore, it is not recommended that the decennial census data be compared to the ACS 5-year Estimates data for this indicator.

In addition, the Census Bureau suggests comparing ACS periods that do not overlap—for example, comparing 2006–2010 estimates with 2011–2015 estimates. This means waiting longer to identify a trend. However, in areas undergoing fundamental shifts in the size or composition of the population, change may be so substantial that it will be obvious after only a few years. For more information on making comparisons with ACS multi-year estimates, see Appendix 1 of ACS General Handbook.
