2021 ACS 1-year Estimates

New Tables

Computer and Internet
  • Detailed Table B28012 provides estimates of computer ownership and internet subscription for the household population.  For the population aged 3 and over, it further breaks down individuals by enrollment status and grade enrolled.
Housing
  • Two new Detailed Tables provide additional estimates for vacant housing units. Detailed Table B25130 provides a more detailed breakdown of the “Other vacant” category found in Detailed Table B25007. Detailed Table B25131 provides estimates on how long a housing unit has been vacant.
  • Four new Detailed Tables provide distributions of utility costs for occupied housing units. Monthly costs for electricity and gas can be found in Detailed Tables B25132 and B25133. Annual costs for water and sewer and other house heating fuels can be found in Detailed Tables B25134 and B25135.
Industry
  • Three new Detailed Tables provide estimates for detailed industry. Table B24134 provides estimates for the civilian employed population 16 years and over.  Table B24135 shows these estimates for the civilian employed male population 16 years and over and Table B24136 for the civilian employed female population 16 years and over.  These tables are published at the national level only. 
Poverty
  • New table B17101 shows the total number of people in households for whom poverty status is determined, the number of people in households whose income is below poverty level, and the number of people in household whose income is at or above the poverty level.

Modified Tables

Employment
  • The row label, universe, and denominator for line 2 of Table S2302 was changed from "Married-couple families" to "Opposite-sex married-couple families." Also, the percent estimate denominators for lines 3-6 of Table S2302 were changed from "Married-couple families" to "Opposite-sex married-couple families." These changes were made to make the estimates more clear, to allow the estimates in lines 3-6 to add to the subtotal in line 2, and to make the percent estimates in lines 3-6 appropriate for this section of the table.
Foreign-Born Population
  • The nativity of parent tabulation was corrected to include same-sex spouses. This change affects Tables B05009 and B05010.

Income
