NOTE TO ALL DATA USERS: All survey and census results contain measurement error and may contain 
sampling error. Information about these potential errors is provided or referenced with the data 
or the source of the data.
The Census Bureau recommends that data users incorporate this information into their analyses as 
these errors could impact inferences. Researchers analyzing data to create their own estimates 
are responsible for the validity of those estimates and should not cite the Census Bureau as the 
source of the estimates but only as the source of the core data.

We have modified some data to protect individuals' privacy, but in a way that preserves the
