Description
  • Abstract

    This summary statistics data file contains a complete or 100-percent count of all persons in group quarters by sex and age, including ages under 1 to 74 with a category for ages 75 and over, as well as the total. The distribution is repeated for 18 race/Hispanic groups. Population in group quarters includes persons in institutional group quarters such as homes, schools, hospitals, or wards for the physically and mentally handicapped, hospitals or wards for mental, tubercular, or chronically ill patients, homes for unwed mothers, nursing, convalescent, and rest homes for the aged and dependent, orphanages, and correctional institutions. Noninstitutional group quarters include rooming and boarding houses, general hospitals, including nurses' and interns' dormitories, college students' dormitories, religious group quarters, and similar housing. Demographic items specify age, sex, state of birth, race, ethnicity, marital status, education, income, and type of group quarters lived in. Data are available for all counties and independent cities in the United States.
