Notes:  (1) County/Counties: A limitation of any PUMS dataset is its geographic coding scheme which is based on areas that include 100,000 persons or more. Hence, multiple smaller counties are often combined to create a single reporting area, while more populous counties can contain numerous Public Use Microdata Areas or PUMAs. While the ACS sample is a much larger sample than is available from any other current survey it is not currently large enough to provide reliable estimates for very detailed cross-tabulations; that is especially true for small areas.

(2) Student households tend to be lower income households by choice; non-family student households are typically not eligible for many of the assisted housing programs otherwise available to households in this income category. We have thus provided a variable to distinguish student households ("Everyone Else") from all other households in the data. Student Headed Non-Family is defined as a household meeting ALL of the following characteristics: the householder is currently enrolled in college under-graduate, college graduate or professional school and less than 30 years of age; non-family; there is no household member with a disability.

(3) Census Bureau ACS estimates are from a sample survey and not a full count from a decennial census. There is a margin of error associated with the estimate. The range based on the margin of error reflects what the statisticians call a "90 percent confidence interval"; it means that nine chances out of 10, the true value falls within this range. We do not provide the range in this table, that is, the high and low ends of the range in which the estimate is found. However, if the low end of the range is negative (thus containing "0") the estimate is not statistically different from "0".
