1 The 2000-2005 rates are for the comparable universe excluding the group quarters population, since that population was added to the ACS in 2006.

2 Major changes were made to the disability questions beginning with the 2008 ACS questionnaire. Comparisons of rates between years 2008 or later and years 2007 or earlier should not be made for these characteristics.

(X) Some instances where no response to this question was required were incorrectly tallied as allocations, overstating the true level of item allocation required. The incorrect rates have been removed.

** This item was not asked in this year.
