Dataset

US Resident Population by Race, Hispanic or Latino Origin, and State: 2000 to 2006

Added By Infochimps

Several datasets, from 2000 through 2006, that describe the US state populations by racial and ethnic makeup.

Format

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 18):

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
1144 1227 1231

This dataset consists of a table of 72 rows and 21 columns.

Footnotes:

  1. 2000 data as of April; beginning 2001, as of July.
  2. Persons of Hispanic or Latino origin may be any race.
  3. Due to the complexities associated with the production of detailed characteristics’ estimates at the state level, the values of the estimates at lower levels of geography may not necessarily sum to estimates at higher levels of geography.
  4. FIPS=Federal Information Processing Standards
