Examining Demographics by Detailed Race Group & Origin
  -- Census 2010 Summary File 2

The Census 2010 Summary File 2 (SF2), completed April 2012, enables extended demographic analysis by race and origin by census tract and higher level geographic area. See details, provided later in this section, for additional information about SF2 structure and content.

The SF2 Demographic Profile 1 (DP1) contains a set of widely used demographics for each race, origin and race/origin group tabulated for each geographic area (census tract up). See the list of SF2 DP1 subject matter items provided later in this section. These sample SF2 DP1 profiles (xls) illustrate the scope of subject matter items included: U.S. total population ... U.S. NHPI alone or in combination with other races.

The interactive ranking table below provides access to the SF2 Demographic Profile 1 (DP1) data (all cells) for the total population and selected race groups for the U.S. and by state and county. View/rank/query/compare SF2 DP1 demographics for one area or a group of areas. All DP1 items are included for each area/row, including percentages as applicable.

Population Pyramids. The ProximityOne ChartGraphics software has been used with the underlying dataset used in the ranking table to develop population pyramid graphics. The population pyramid shows a male population bar chart (left side of pyramid) symmetrically with a female population bar chart (right side of pyramid). Each bar shows the population by 5-year age group, 0-4 years to 80-84 years and 85 years and over. The SF2 DP1-based population pyramid graphics, and associated age group by gender data in tabular form, are included in each S&O Narrative Profile.

An example. Use this table to determine that, based on Census 2010, Harris County has the largest Asian Indian population (D001 -- 50,045) among all Texas counties. There are 2,942 Asian Indians ages 0-4 (D002) in Harris County, TX. In the P002 column, see that this group of 2,942 Asian Indians comprises 5.9% of all Asian Indians in this county.


Structure and Content of Table
  • The table contains a set of race group records/rows for the U.S., each state and each county.
  • Each row contains the SF2 Demographic Profile 1 (DP1) data items for an area and race group combination.
  • Rows are present for the total population and up to 10 race groups (listed below).
  • Race group records only appear where there are at least 100 people in that group in that area.
  • The data are not downloadable from table; the data may be downloaded via the Census FactFinder website.

Row/Race Group Iterations (per geographic area)
  • 001 Total population
  • 002 White
  • 004 Black or African American alone
  • 006 American Indian and Alaska Native alone (300, A01-Z99)
  • 012 Asian alone (400-499)
  • 013 Asian Indian alone (400-401)
  • 016 Chinese alone (410-419)
  • 022 Japanese alone (430-439)
  • 050 Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone (500-599)
  • 052 Native Hawaiian alone (500-503)
  • 062 Native Hawaiian alone or in any combination (500-503) & (100-299) or (300, A01-Z99) or (400-999)

DP1 Subject Matter Items (columns across each row)
There are 121 "D" and 121 "P" items/columns in each row. In general, the D item is a population or household count and the corresponding P item is the percent. All percents are for totals in corresponding row.

About Census 2010 Summary File 2
The Census 2010 Summary File 2 (SF2) is the fourth major Census 2010 data resource following the Summary File 1 (SF1) released in August 2011, Demographic Profile Summary File (DPSF) released in May 2011 and P.L. 94-171 redistricting data released earlier in 2011.

The SF2 contains 100 percent data asked of all people and about every housing unit on topics such as sex, age, race, Hispanic origin, household relationship, household type, group quarters population, housing occupancy, and housing tenure. The SF2 is released as individual files for the U.S., each state, D.C., Puerto Rico and as a national file.

Primary differences between SF1 and SF2 are 1) subject matter tables are iterated by race and origin and 2) census tract is the low level tabulation geography (compared to census block in SF1).

Summary File 2 Data Scope, Content, Structure and Organization

  • Table Shells [XLS]
  • Technical Documentation [PDF]

SF2 Tables. Data tables are described in the Table Shells xls file. Tables are similar to Summary File 1 tables and include:
  • "PCT" tables: Population subjects available down to the census tract level (47 PCT tables)
  • "PCO" tables: Population subjects available down to the county level (10 PCO tables)
  • "HCT" tables: Housing subjects available down to the census tract level (14 HCT tables)

Additional Information
Proximity develops geodemographic-economic data and analytical tools and helps organizations knit together and use diverse data in a decision-making and analytical framework. We develop custom demographic/economic estimates and projections, develop geographic and geocoded address files, and assist with impact and geospatial analyses. Wide-ranging organizations use our resources (software, data, methodologies) to analyze their own data integrated with other data.
