I’m using ACS data for the first time and working with the 2021 1-year estimates. The data I need mostly comes from detailed tables and in some cases I’m not sure how to find the right table.
For example: I’m looking for “Age Distribution” data for “White alone.” S0101 is divided by sex and cannot be filtered by race or ethnicity. I have tried a few searches and have not yet found a detailed table that is specific to race. (For other data like Income, I have successfully found tables like B19013A that are specific.)
Another example: I’m looking for “Poverty Rate” data for “American Indian or Alaska Native alone.” I’m having the same problem as above.
I may just not know the right keywords to search - or I might be using ACS incorrectly in a more fundamental way. Would appreciate any advice!
For my project, Census Reporter, we've tried to help with this challenge. You can browse almost all of the available tables in our topical help through https://censusreporter.org/topics/ -- hopefully it's useful for you!
Joe, thank you so much for creating this resource! It really helped me to understand ACS data when I was getting started (and still does). I recommend it all the time.
