Modified Tables

Food Stamps
  • The tabulation for S2201 was corrected.  In the “Household Type” section “No children under 18 years” > “Other family: Female householder, no spouse present,” the estimate was corrected for “Households not receiving food stamps/SNAP.” For more information, visit the Tabulation Processing Error in Table S2201 for 2015 to 2020 ACS errata note.
Foreign-Born Population
  • The tabulation of Detailed Table B05015 was corrected. This correction impacts estimates of the foreign-born population born in the Dominican Republic and year of entry within that subpopulation. It also impacts estimates of the “All Other Countries” subpopulation and year of entry within it. For more information, visit the Tabulation Processing Error in Table B05015 for 2019 to 2021 ACS errata note.
Households and Families
  • A new line has been added to S1101 to show households with one or more people 65 years and over.
Housing
  • The method for inflation adjusting median dollar amounts for previous years in the Comparison Profile tables changed. Data users should now be able to closely match the estimates by inflation-adjusting previous year estimates using the Consumer Price Index Retroactive Series (R-CPI-U-RS). The rows impacted in CP04 include median owner costs for mortgaged units, median owner costs for non-mortgaged units and median gross rent.
Income
  • The method for inflation adjusting median dollar amounts for previous years in the Comparison Profile tables changed. Data users should now be able to closely match the estimates by inflation-adjusting previous year estimates using the Consumer Price Index Retroactive Series (R-CPI-U-RS). The rows impacted in CP03 include Median household income, Median family income, Median nonfamily income, Median earnings for workers, Median earnings for male full-time year-round workers, and Median earnings for female full-time year-round workers.

Marital Status
  • A new line has been added to S1201 to show the ratio of unmarried men 15 to 44 years per 100 unmarried women 15 to 44 years.
Mortgage Status
  • Changes were made to allow those without a mortgage to have a home equity loan. Row labels in B25081 were changed from “No second mortgage and no home equity loan” to “Housing units with no second mortgage and no home equity loan,” “Home equity loan only” to “Mortgage, with only home equity loan,” and “Second mortgage only” to “Mortgage, with only second mortgage.” A row was added to B25081 for “Housing units with only a home equity loan.”
  • A row label and estimates in S2506 were changed from “With either a second mortgage or home equity loan, but not both” to “With a mortgage and either a second mortgage or home equity loan.” A row was added to S2506 for “Home equity loan only without a primary mortgage.” Row labels for "Second mortgage only" and "Home equity loan only" were updated to "Only Second mortgage" and "Only Home equity loan," respectively. 
Poverty
  • A new line was added to S1701 to show poverty status for households.
Year Structure Built
  • Changes were made to the top end of the distribution for Year Structure Built. The top two categories were changed from “Built 2014 or later” and “Built 2010 to 2013” to “Built 2020 or later” and “Built 2010 to 2019” to better capture the newer housing units built sector, whose characteristics can be useful for housing analysis.
    • Detailed Tables that include these changes are: B25034, B25036, B25107, B25108, B25111, B25112, and B25126.
    • Detailed Table B25127 was updated from “Built 2010 or later” and “Built 2000 to 2009” to “Built 2020 or later” and “Built 2000 to 2019.”
    • Other modified tables include DP04, CP04, and S2504.
