The data are organized in 121 tables which are presented at four levels of observation: American Samoa as a whole, districts (and two separate atolls), counties and villages. Every table cell is represented by a separate variable in the data which are segmented into four data files.

Together with the data files, the Census Bureau prepared a codebook and additional documentation, a Microsoft Access database shell, and a HTML-based application for displaying the tables called the Interactive Summary Level Access and Navigation Database (ISLAND). ICPSR supplies all of these components, except the codebook, in three ZIP archives. The first archive contains the data files, the second the database shell and additional documentation and the third contains ISLAND. The codebook is provided as a separate file.
