Population Group Characteristics & Trends
.. tools and methods to access and use population group data .. demographic-economic attributes of population groups are important for many reasons. A "population group" can be defined many ways but most typically are focused on population and households that are a subset of the total population/households based on race/origin, gender and/or age. Characteristics of population groups are tabulated by many Federal statistical agencies (FSS) in many statistical programs. This section is focused mainly on data tabulated for population groups in the American Community Survey (ACS).

ACS Population Group Tables
ACS table numbers and descriptions are shown in the table shells Excel file. The table shells file shows what data have been tabulated as summary statistics that are available in the form of files or accessible via the Web. Use the table shells file to determine items tabulated/available.
Scroll down in the table shells file to see that table "B01001" (population by age and gender) is iterated as "B01001A" through "B01001I". The appended/final character identifies the population group for which the table B01001 cells are tabulated. Data for nine "population groups" are available. Population group codes are shown below.
A White alone
B Black or African American Alone
C American Indian and Alaska Native Alone
D Asian Alone
E Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander Alone
F Some Other Race Alone
G Two or More Races
H White Alone, Not Hispanic or Latino
I Hispanic or Latino
Manipulating the table shells file, the population group subject matter tables are presented in the table shown below. In this table, only the "A White alone" population group is listed. The table sets exist for each population group A through I.
The "B" tables, determined by first character in table code in the first column, are available "down to" to the block group and higher geographic levels. For example, to access table B01001A table/cell B01001A_001E for Dallas County, TX, use the API instruction:
See more about using the API in the API Tools section and the ZIP Code Data Analytics section.
