Notes about the data

[1] The population estimate from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Population Estimates program provides the most current snapshot of population for cities of this size. This estimate should be used for population counts. The American Community Survey (ACS) population counts are used to determine the share of the population for characteristics sourced from the ACS.

[2]Poverty status is determined for all people except institutionalized people, people in military group quarters, people in college dormitories, and unrelated individuals under 15 years old. These groups are excluded from the numerator and denominator when calculating poverty rates.

suppressed indicates that data were suppressed. Data have been suppressed when there were fewer than 10 people or units in a category, the percentage estimate is less than 1%, or the error margins were greater than 70% of the estimate of a numeric value (such as median income). Large error margins occur when too few people or households were in the survey sample, making the data unreliable.
