American FactFinder: When I type in New York, NY, I see information about a county instead of the city.  How do I find data for New York City?

To find a city with the  same name as its state (for example,  New York City, New York; Delaware City, Delaware; Iowa City, Iowa), you should specify that it is a "city" in your search.  If you do not specify “city” and there is a county in the state with the same name, that county will be returned instead of the city you are looking for.

A valid search would look like this:

  • New York City, NY
  • Delaware City, DE
  • Iowa City, IA
