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.


Notes:
·Data for the households, families, occupied housing units, owner-occupied housing units, and renter-occupied housing
units lines refer to the specified race, Hispanic or Latino, American Indian or Alaska Native, or ancestry of the householder
shown in the table. Data in the "Total population" column are shown regardless of the race, Hispanic or Latino, American
Indian or Alaska Native, or ancestry of the person.

See the Glossary for more information on the definition of the following population groups: Arab, Arab/Arabic, European,
Subsaharan African, African, United States or American, and All Other Hispanic or Latino.

While the 2006 American Community Survey (ACS) data generally reflect the December 2005 Office of Management and
Budget (OMB) definitions of metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas, in certain instances the names, codes, and
boundaries of the principal cities shown in ACS tables may differ from the OMB definitions due to differences in the
effective dates of the geographic entities.

Explanation of Symbols:

1. An '**' entry in the margin of error column indicates that either no sample observations or 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 estimate column indicates that either no sample observations or too few 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.

3. An '-' following a median estimate means the median falls in the lowest interval of an open-ended distribution.

4. An '+' following a median estimate means the median falls in the upper interval of an open-ended distribution.
5. 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.
6. An '*****' entry in the margin of error column indicates that the estimate is controlled. A statistical test for sampling
variability is not appropriate.
7. 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.
8. An '(X)' means that the estimate is not applicable or not available.
