Description
  • Abstract

    The Census 2000: Special Tabulation on Aging provides information for each of the 50 states along with the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico with a special focus on persons age 60 and older. Population topics (Tables P001 through P116 for each state and state equivalent file) include basic population totals, age, sex, race, Hispanic or Latino origin, households and families, group quarters, marital status, grandparents as caregivers, ability to speak English, place of birth, citizenship status, migration, educational attainment, veteran status, disability, employment status, income, and poverty status. Household topics (tables H01 through H69) include tenure (owner occupied or renter occupied), household size, units in structure, year structure was built, availability of plumbing and kitchen facilities, and whether meals are included in the rent and value of home. Both the population and housing subjects may be cross tabulated. Files are organized according to the ten regions as defined by the Administration on Aging. Each table provides information at a number of geographical levels: United States (50 states + DC), state, Planning and Service Area (PSA -- the geographic area served by a single area agency on aging), county, county subdivision in 12 states with a population of 2,500 or more, places with a population of 2,500 or more, and census tract, as well as American Indian and Alaska Native areas. Also, the urban and rural components of states and PSAs are shown. The data are in the form of Excel tables. The technical documentation provides extensive details about such topics as the tabulation specifications, the geographical levels shown, how to use the statistical tables, and the measures used to protect confidentiality.
