Census of Population and Housing, 2000 [United States]: Summary File 2 Supplement, States (ICPSR 21804)
Principal Investigator(s): United States Department of Commerce. Bureau of the Census
Derived from the Census 2000 100-percent data, this file contains Table PCT37 (household population by sex and age), which is tabulated for every geographic unit represented in the data. PCT37 looks identical to Table PCT5 in Census 2000 Summary File 2. The only difference between PCT37 and PCT5 is that PCT37 was tallied according to the race, Hispanic or Latino origin, or American Indian or Alaska Native tribe of the person, whereas PCT5 was tallied according to the race, Hispanic or Latino origin, or American Indian or Alaska Native tribe of the householder. The data contain one variable for each cell in PCT37 and additional variables with geographic information, and they cover the geographic levels of observation (known as "summary levels" in the Census Bureau's nomenclature) shown in Summary File 2. Within each summary level, PCT37 can be iterated for 250 population groups: the total population, 132 race groups, 78 American Indian and Alaska Native tribe categories (reflecting 39 individual tribes), and 39 Hispanic or Latino groups. However, the presentation of PCT37 for any of the 250 population groups is subject to a population threshold of 100 or more people. That is, if there are fewer than 100 people in a specific population group in a specific geographic area, then PCT37 is not iterated for the group in that area. A separate data file is supplied for each of the 76-239 population groups shown in each state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
The collection is supplied in 54 ZIP archives. There is a separate ZIP file for each state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, and for the convenience of those who need all of the data, a separate ZIP archive with all 7,841 data files. The codebook and other documentation constitute the last ZIP archive.
These data are freely available.
