2005 American Community Survey and 2000 Census Characteristics

Notes:
 ·Data are based on a sample and are subject to sampling variability. The degree of uncertainty for an estimate
arising from sampling variability is represented through the use of a margin of error. The value shown here is
the 90 percent margin of error. The margin of error can be interpreted roughly as providing a 90 percent
probability that the interval defined by the estimate minus the margin of error and the estimate plus the margin
of error (the lower and upper confidence bounds) contains the true value. In addition to sampling variability, the
ACS estimates are subject to nonsampling error (for a discussion of nonsampling variability, see Accuracy of
the Data). The effect of nonsampling error is not represented in these tables.
 ·The number of householders does not necessarily equal the number of households because of differences in
the weighting schemes for the population and occupied housing units.
 ·For more information on understanding race and Hispanic origin data, please see the Census 2000 Brief
entitled, Overview of Race and Hispanic Origin, issued March 2001 in (pdf format).

 ·Ancestry listed in this table refers to the total number of people who responded with a particular ancestry; for
example, the estimate given for Russian represents the number of people who listed Russian as either their
first or second ancestry. This table lists only the largest ancestry groups; see the Detailed Tables for more
categories. Race and Hispanic origin groups are not included in this table because official data for those groups
come from the Race and Hispanic origin questions rather than the ancestry question (see Demographic Table).
 ·The Census Bureau introduced a new skip pattern for the disability questions in the 2003 ACS questionnaire.
This change mainly affected two individual items -- go-outside-home disability and employment disability -- and
the recode for disability status, which includes the two items. Accordingly, comparisons of data from 2003 or
later with data from prior years are not recommended for the relevant questions. For more information, see the
ACS Subject Definitions for Disability.
 ·Data for year of entry of the native population reflect the year of entry into the U.S. by people who were born in
Puerto Rico, U.S. Island Areas or born outside the U.S. to a U.S. citizen parent and who subsequently moved
to the U.S.
 · The determination of significant change does not account for sampling error in the 2000 Census. for the
Social Characteristics profile.

Explanation of Symbols:
1. An '*' entry in the margin of error column indicates that too few sample observations were available to
compute a standard error and thus the margin of error. A statistical test is not appropriate.
 2. An '**' entry in the margin of error column indicates that no sample observations were available to compute
a standard error and thus the margin of error. A statistical test is not appropriate.
 3. An '-' entry in the estimate column indicates that no sample observations were available to compute an
estimate, or a ratio of medians cannot be calculated because one or both of the median estimates falls in the
lowest interval or upper interval of an open-ended distribution.
 4. An '-' following a median estimate means the median falls in the lowest interval of an open-ended
distribution.
 5. An '+' following a median estimate means the median falls in the upper interval of an open-ended
distribution.
 6. An '***' entry in the margin of error column indicates that the median falls in the lowest interval or upper
interval of an open-ended distribution. A statistical test is not appropriate.
 7. An '*****' entry in the margin of error column indicates that the estimate is controlled. A statistical test for
sampling variability is not appropriate.
 8. An 'N' entry in the estimate and margin of error columns indicates that data for this geographic area cannot
be displayed because the number of sample cases is too small.
 9. An '(X)' means that the estimate is not applicable or not available.
