Census Bureau News – Current Population Survey: 2010
The Census Bureau released wealth of new sociodemographic data sets today (not based on last year’s census), and among them is an entire section dedicated to Hispanics.
These sets of table packages are from the Current Population Survey and include detailed statistics about age and sex by five year age groups, the older population (55 and older), the Hispanic population (includes data from 2009), the black population and the Asian population. The tables provide a wide range of demographic characteristics about the U.S. labor force, such as marital status, educational attainment, nativity, employment status, occupation, poverty and housing tenure. These data are not from the 2010 Census. Additionally, these estimates should not be confused with similar estimates from the American Community Survey (ACS) http://www.census.gov/acs/www/
Where topics overlap, the bureau recommends using ACS data, unless the data are needed for national historical time series analyses. To access the new reports:
