Citizen Voting Age Population (CVAP) by Race and Ethnicity - A Special Tabulation from the ACS 5-Year Estimates

A Citizen Voting Age by Race and Ethnicity (CVAP) special tabulation was originally created from the Census 2000 long form. This original CVAP special tabulation was produced at the request of a group of data users and was published in 2002 for use in voting rights analysis.

After the 2010 Census, at the request of the Department of Justice, the U.S. Census Bureau began publishing an annual CVAP special tabulation from the most current American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year estimates starting in February of 2011.

The 2002 special tabulation and the subsequent ACS versions are all published down to the block-group level of geography.

NOTE: The CVAP special tabulation data is organized in the tabs below by the last year of the ACS 5-year span or the year of the Decennial Census, depending on whether ACS or Decennial data were used to produce the dataset. Please be aware this is not the same as the year of the data's publication (e.g. the 2018 Tab below is for the 2014-2018 ACS 5-Year CVAP special tabulation which was published in February of 2020).

Citizen Voting Age Population by Race and Ethnicity

CVAP from the 2005-2009 American Community Survey 5-year Estimates

The Citizen Voting Age Population (CVAP) Special Tabulation from the 2005-2009 5-Year American Community Survey is now available.

The data files, in both CSV and SAS formats, are posted through these links. The zip files contain the CVAP documentation along with nationwide files for the following geographies:

  • Nation
  • State
  • County
  • Place
  • MCD (Minor Civil Division - only for CT, ME, MA, NH, RI, VT, MI, WI, NJ, NY, MN, and PA)
  • Tract (Note: these are Census 2000 tracts, not 2010 Census tracts)
  • Block Groups (Note: these are Census 2000 block groups, not 2010 Census block groups)
  • NOTE: Tract and Block Group level data from the 2005-2009 ACS are based on the Census 2000 boundaries for those entities. In a short number of counties, the 2010 Census or an interim version of the 2010 Census Tract and Block Groups was used. Details about this discrepancy can be found here Geography Release Notes for 2009 under the "Census Tracts and Block Groups in 2005-2009 ACS 5-year Estimates with Geographic Code and Definition Problems" banner.
