Citizen Voting Age Population by Race and Ethnicity


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).
