Money Income of Households -- Number and Distribution by Race and Hispanic Origin: 2005

Added By Infochimps

The Statistical Abstract files are distributed by the US Census Department as Microsoft Excel files. These files have data mixed with notes and references, multiple tables per sheet, and, worst of all, the table headers are not easily matched to their rows and columns.

A few files had extraneous characters in the title. These were corrected to be consistent. A few files have a sheet of crufty gibberish in the first slot. The sheet order was shuffled but no data were changed.

The tables that were changed (this is table 671):

0166 0257 0362 0429 0445 0446 0459 0461 0462 0464 0465 0466 0467
0469 0479 0480 0481 0482 0483 0484 0485 0486 0487 0559 0628 0629

This dataset consists of a table of 72 rows and 28 columns.

Households as of March of the following year. (111,278 represents 111,278,000). Based on Current Population Survey (CPS); see text, Sections 1 and 13, and Appendix III. The 2006 CPS allowed respondents to choose more than one race. Data represent persons who selected this race group only and excludes persons reporting more than one race. The CPS in prior years only allowed respondents to report one race group. See also comments on race in the text for Section 1, Population


  1. Starting with the 2003 CPS, respondents were asked to choose one or more races. White Alone refers to people
    who reported White and did not report any other race category. The use of this single-race
    population does not imply that it is the preferred method of presenting or analyzing data.
    The Census Bureau uses a variety of approaches. Information on people who reported more
    than one race, such as “White and American Indian and Alaska Native” or “Asian and Black
    or African American,” is available from Census 2000 through American Factfinder. About
    2.1 percent of people reported more than one race in 2000.
  2. Black alone refers to people who reported Black and did not report any other race category.
  3. Asian alone refers to people who reported Asian and did not report any other race category.
  4. Persons of Hispanic origin may be of any race.
