The American Samoa Summary File contains data on population and housing subjects compiled from questions on the 2010 American Samoa Census questionnaire. Population subjects include age, sex, children ever born, citizenship status, foreign-born status, disability status, educational attainment, ethnic origin or race, family type, grandparents as caregivers, group quarters population, health insurance coverage status, household type and relationship, employment status and subsistence activity, work experience, class of worker, industry, occupation, place of work, journey to work, travel time to work, language spoken at home and frequency of language usage, marital status, nativity, year of entry, place of birth, parents' place of birth, earnings, income, remittances sent abroad, poverty status, residence in 2009, reason for moving, school enrollment, vocational training, military dependents and veteran status. Housing subjects include air conditioning, battery-operated radio ownership, computer ownership, gross rent, internet service, kitchen facilities, cooking facilities, mortgage status, number of rooms, number of bedrooms, occupancy status, occupants per room, plumbing facilities, condominium fee, selected monthly owner costs, sewage disposal, water supply, source of water, telephone service available, tenure, type of building materials, units in structure, vacancy status, value of home, vehicles available, year householder moved into unit and year structure built.

The data are organized in 405 tables, one variable per table cell, which are presented at up to 19 levels of observation, including American Samoa as a whole, districts (including two separate atolls), counties, villages, census tracts, block groups, blocks and 5-digit ZIP Code Tabulation Areas. Fifty tables are presented at the block level and higher, 250 at the block group level and higher and 105 at the census tract level and higher. Additionally, the tables are iterated for the urban and rural geographic components of districts/atolls and 21 geographic components of American Samoa as a whole: 15 urban components (total urban, urbanized areas, urban clusters, and urbanized areas and urban clusters of various population sizes) and 6 rural components (total rural, rural areas outside places, rural areas inside places and inside places of various population sizes).

Due to problems in the initial version, the Census Bureau ultimately issued the tables as three data products. The first or main release comprises 32 data files with all the tables except PBG7 (Nativity by Citizen Status by Year of Entry), PBG9 (Year of Entry for the Foreign-born Population) and ten tables on selected monthly owner costs, the tables HBG72, HBG73, HBG74, HBG75, HBG76, HBG77, HBG78, HCT17, HCT18, and HCT19. The second, called the American Samoa Year of Entry Summary File, consists of two data files with the tables PBG7 and PBG9. The third is a document file with the ten tables on selected monthly owner costs.

This data collection comprises a codebook and three ZIP archives. The first archive contains the 32 data files in the main release, the second the two Year of Entry data files and the third contains the document file with the ten selected monthly owner costs tables and additional technical documentation.
