2010 Census Special Tabulation Program


Special Tabulation Content

Subject Content

Most data collected within the content of the census questionnaire could be made available in a special tabulation. Special tabulations are created by tabulating data from the 2010 Census internal microdata files. Both population and housing data are available. Percentages, rates, and other indicators can be calculated as part of a special tabulation.

Additional topics not available in the 2010 Census, such as education, income and poverty, employment, country of birth, and value of property, are available through the American Community Survey for the United States and the Puerto Rico Community Survey for Puerto Rico.  For more information on special tabulations from the American Community Survey and the Puerto Rico Community Survey, visit the ACS custom tabulations website.  For information on special tabulations from Census 2000, visit the Census 2000 special tabulations program website.

Geographic Content

In addition to special tabulations for standard census geographic entities, such as states (including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico), counties, census tracts, and American Indian and Alaska Native areas, we can tabulate data for user-defined geographic areas. For example, data for a neighborhood could be tabulated using Census blocks or other standard geography as the building blocks. We also can provide special tabulations for the U.S. Island Areas (Guam, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands).

More information on subject matter definitions, geographic terms and concepts, accuracy of the 2010 Census data, and how the census was conducted is available in the technical documentation for Summary File 1.
