Content of the Tables
Sample size. The statistics in this report are based on a sample adjusted to represent the total population. All tables are based on a 15-percent sample, except table 5, which is based on a 5-percent sample.
Census statistics date back to 1790 and reflect the growth and change of the United States. Past census reports contain some terms that today’s readers may consider obsolete and inappropriate. As part of our goal to be open and transparent with the public, we are improving access to all Census Bureau original publications and statistics, which serve as a guide to the nation's history.
