I. File Organization: The files in the Residential Housing Patterns directory contain 19 indexes of residential housing patterns for each race/ethnicity group and metropolitan area/division (as defined on June 6, 2003). There is one record per race/ethnicity group and metropolitan area/division. There is one file for each year and each race/ethnicity group and one file for each year with all groups combined. All indexes were calculated using Non-Hispanic Whites as the reference group. The unit of analysis is the census tract. The number of race/ethnicity groups and metropolitan areas/divisions are indicated below. Number of Number of Year Race/Ethnicity Groups Metropolitan Areas/Divisions 2000 6 380 Note: Residential Housing Pattern Indexes can only be shown for metropolitan areas with a minority population of 100 or more for the group in question.
