Hello everyone! I am very new at this, and could use all the help the community is willing to offer. I am looking for the most recent data on female led renter households in Norfolk, Virginia. Where would I start in order to be able to pull this data? TIA
Hi. You'll want to go to data.census.gov, and search for table B25011, "TENURE BY HOUSEHOLD TYPE (INCLUDING LIVING ALONE) AND AGE OF HOUSEHOLDER". Then, there's a button that will say "1 Geography". If you click on that, it will allow you to select census tracts, and narrow down your tracts to those within Norfolk, VA. Or you could just use this link: https://data.census.gov/cedsci/table?q=ACSDT1Y2019.B25011&g=0500000US51710.140000_0600000US5171094875&tid=ACSDT5Y2018.B25011&hidePreview=true
Be careful, though, with the definition of "Female led". In this table, it means a family household with a female and no husband present. It doesn't include female-only non-family households or male-female married households where the female has been designated the householder (not to mention two-female married households).
