New via API: Decennial Census Surnames

The Census Bureau's Census surnames product is a data release based on names recorded in the decennial census. The product contains rank and frequency data on surnames reported 100 or more times in the decennial census, along with Hispanic origin and race category percentages.

The data focus on summarized aggregates of counts and characteristics associated with surnames, and the data do not in any way identify any specific individuals.
