The data file contains 3,191 records: one for the United States, each state and the District of Columbia, and 3,139 counties or county equivalents. Each logical record has been divided into seven 1,899-character segments.
In the footnote file, footnotes associated with specific data cells qualify the data in one way or another. Some examples include a reference period different from the norm or the combination of data for two or more areas. The data user is urged to review the applicable footnotes for the items to be used.
The data dictionary is not designed for use with any software package.
The time periods covered for each data item vary. For data series that are available on an annual basis, several years of data will generally be presented. For decennial census and economic census data items, comparable information from a prior census is available in many cases.
