Analyzing extended demographics by census block and higher level geographic areas ... new data resources from Census 2010. The Census 2010 Summary File 1 (SF1) release was completed August 25, 2011.

The SF1 is the third major Census 2010 data resource following the Demographic Profile Summary File (DPSF) data released in May 2011 and following the P.L. 94-171 redistricting data released earlier in 2011.

The SF1 contains 100 percent data asked of all people and about every housing unit on topics such as sex, age, race, Hispanic origin, household relationship, household type, group quarters population, housing occupancy, and housing tenure. The SF1 is released as individual files for the U.S., each state, D.C., Puerto Rico and as a national summary file.

Click on links in upper right scroll box to view full U.S. profile (with California and Texas) and profiles for other selected areas. These profiles, and ranking table below, were developed with ProximityOne Situation & Outlook software using the DPFS database.

Note that in comparison to the DPSF data:
  • These profiles show a small subset of the scope of demographic subject matter contained in the SF1 data.
  • These subject matter items may be presented at the census block
    and any higher level geographic summary area for which Census 2010 data are tabulated using the SF1 data.

Develop similar comparative analysis profiles for any set of geographies in DPSF/SF1 dataset. Contact us for more information (mention SF1).
