Hello-- I'm new to ACS and am conducting analysis on percent employment by census tract. When I look at the API link for ACS 2010 5 year estimates, I don't understand the difference between data profile "DP03_0002PE" which indicates Percent Employment Status In labor force and data profile DP03_0011PE" which has exactly the same description. Could someone shed some light on this?
Coming to this thread years too late but I came across this as I was trying to figure out the same thing. I suspected that the two variables were the same except one included both males and females. Upon further investigation in other years I confirmed it.
DP03_0002PE = Everyone over 16 in the labor force
DP03_0011PE = Females over 16 in the labor force
