Summary:

This data collection provides detailed tabulations of 100-percent data items from the 1990 Census of Population and Housing. These tabulations are presented for the United States, regions, divisions, states, counties, county subdivisions with 10,000 or more persons (in 12 states), county subdivisions with fewer than 10,000 persons and in a Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA)/Consolidated Metropolitan Statistical Area (CMSA) (New England states only), places of 10,000 or more persons, consolidated cities, American Indian reservations with and without trust lands for the United States, states, and counties, Alaska Native Regional Corporations, MSA/CMSAs (both total and state portion) and Primary Metropolitan Statistical Areas (PMSAs), state, county, and central city portion of MSAs and PMSAs, urbanized areas, and state and central place portion of urbanized areas. Population items include age, race, sex, marital status, Hispanic origin, household type, and household relationship. Housing items include occupancy/vacancy status, tenure, units in structure, contract rent, meals included in rent, value, and number of rooms in housing unit. Crosstabulations include variables such as single year of age by sex, tenure by age of householder, age by group quarters, aggregate value by units in structure, and tenure by number of nonrelatives. The dataset contains both "A" and "B" records. "A" records are provided for each summary level in a geographic area, and are repeated for each geographic component. "B" records repeat the same data for each summary level/geographic component combination, but are tabulated for each of 34 categories of race and Hispanic origin.
