Estimates from two years are "significantly different" if their difference is large enough to infer that there was a less than 10 percent chance that the difference came entirely from random variation. Notes: 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 (pdf format) Explanation of Symbols: 1. An `-' entry in an Estimate column indicates that no sample observations were available to compute an estimate. 2. An `-' following a median estimate means the median falls in the lowest interval of an open-ended distribution. 3. An `+' following a median estimate means the median falls in the upper interval of an open-ended distribution. 4. An `N' entry in an Estimate column indicates that data for this geographic area cannot be displayed because the number of sample cases is too small. Figure D.1. (Continued).

Estimates from two years are "significantly different" if their difference is large enough to infer that there was a less than 10 percent chance that the difference came entirely from random variation. Notes: 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 United States. Explanation of Symbols: 1. An `-' entry in an Estimate column indicates that no sample observations were available to compute an estimate. 2. An `-' following a median estimate means the median falls in the lowest interval of an open-ended distribution. 3. An `+' following a median estimate means the median falls in the upper interval of an open-ended distribution. 4. An `N' entry in an Estimate column indicates that data for this geographic area cannot be displayed because the number of sample cases is too small. Figure D.2. (Continued).

Estimates from two years are "significantly different" if their difference is large enough to infer that there was a less than 10 percent chance that the difference came entirely from random variation. Notes: 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. Employment and unemployment estimates may vary from the official labor force data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics because of differences in survey design and data collection. For guidance on differences in employment and unemployment estimates from different sources go to http://www.census.gov/hhes/www/laborfor/laborguidance082504.html. Workers include members of the Armed Forces and civilians who were at work last week. Occupation codes are four-digit codes, but are still based on Standard Occupational Classification 2000. Industry codes are four-digit codes and are based on the North American Industry Classification System 2002.

Estimates from two years are "significantly different" if their difference is large enough to infer that there was a less than 10 percent chance that the difference came entirely from random variation. Notes: Value is the only dollar amount collected in specified intervals (checkboxes). The category boundaries are not adjusted for inflation. The median value forprevious years is adjusted for inflation by multiplying a factor equal to the average annual CPI-U-RS factor. For the characteristic Selected Monthly Owner Costs as a Percentage of Household Income, the percent distributions are calculated based on the total number of Owner-occupied Housing Units with a Mortgage and Owner-occupied Housing Units without a Mortgage minus the number of Owner-occupied Housing Units in the not computed category. For the characteristic Gross Rent as a Percentage of Household Income, the percent distributions are calculated based on the total number of Renter-occupied Units minus the number of Units in the not computed category. For the characteristic Gross Rent, the percent distributions and medians are calculated based on the total number of Renter-occupied Units minus the number of Units in the no cash rent category. Explanation of Symbols: 1. An `-' entry in an Estimate column indicates that no sample observations were available to compute an estimate. 2. An `-' following a median estimate means the median falls in the lowest interval of an open-ended distribution. 3. An `+' following a median estimate means the median falls in the upper interval of an open-ended distribution. 4. An `N' entry in an Estimate column indicates that data for this geographic area cannot be displayed because the number of sample cases is too small. Figure D.4. (Continued).
