This data collection contains a complete or 100-percent
count of all persons in group quarters by sex and single years of
age up to 74 years old with a category for all persons 75 years
old and older, as well as a total. The distribution is repeated for
18 racial/ethnic groups. The group quarters population includes
persons in institutional group quarters such as homes, schools,
hospitals, or wards for the physically and mentally handicapped,
hospitals or wards for mental, tubercular, or chronically ill patients,
homes for unwed mothers, nursing, convalescent, and rest homes for
the aged and dependent, orphanages, and correctional facilities.
Noninstitutional group quarters cover rooming and boarding houses,
general hospitals, including nurses' and interns' dormitories, college
student dormitories, religious group quarters, and similar housing. Data
are available for all counties and independent cities.
