1
 Data are derived from the U.S. Census 2000, SF3 file, (except as noted) which based on the "long form" that
sampled 1 in 6 households. It is an estimate, but includes information about income, employment, housing and
poverty.
2
 For the purposes of this project, neighborhoods are defined as aggregations of whole census tracts. In some
cases neighborhood definitions are significantly different from traditional boundaries.
3
  A family is defined as two or more people who reside together and are related by birth, marriage, or adoption.
Compare with household.
4
  The U.S. Census defines "Hispanic origin" as an ethnicity rather than a race. Race is a self-identification item in
which respondents choose the race(s) with which they most closely identify. Racial categories have been changed
for this census, therefore Census 2000 race data are not comparable with data from previous censuses. Those
reported here for specific categories selected one race to describe themselves. Those who chose two or more
categories are included in "other non-Hispanic race."
5
  A household is composed of all the people who occupy a housing unit as their usual place of residence. Compare
with family.
6
  A median is the middle value in a list of values and divides the list into two equal parts. Because of the way
medians are reported by the census, we have used weights to determine median incomes. We have taken the
medians calculated for each tract, multiplied by the percentage of the population of the aggregated neighborhood,
and summed them.
7
  A housing unit is as house, apartment, mobile home or trailer, group of rooms or a single room occupied as
separate living quarters. Separate living quarters are those in which the occupants live separately from other
individuals and which have direct access from outside the building or through a common hall.
8
  Poverty is calculated for only a portion of the population - "those for whom poverty status can be calculated." See
www.census.gov/hhes/www/poverty.html. The Federal Poverty Level is a set of income thresholds that vary family
size and composition to determine who is poor. The poverty threshold for a family of four was $17,029 in 1999.
When calculating poverty, the government does not include costs for childcare and health care. In addition,
regional costs of living are not taken into consideration.
