Data are facts on people, places and business collected in censuses and surveys and through administrative records (e.g., birth certificates). The results released based on these data collections are often called statistics.
The sources of the data published on Census.gov are the Census Bureau and other federal agencies, if applicable. For additional Migration/Geographic Mobility data, please visit the subtopic pages.
