Why don't I see an American Community Survey (ACS) Selected Population Profile (SPP) table for a specific group in my city or county?
There are two thresholds used for Selected Population Profiles (SPPs).
First, we look at the total population size of the geographic area. Beginning with the 2007 American Community Survey (ACS), SPPs are released for geographic areas with a total population of at least 500,000. Prior to the 2007 ACS, Selected Population Profiles were produced for geographic areas with a total population of at least 1 million.
Second, we look at the size of the population group of interest.
Selected Population Profiles provide summary tables separately for over 100 detailed race, ethnic, ancestry, and tribal groups. Beginning with the 2007 American Community Survey, the SPPs are also available for approximately 100 countries and region of birth groups.
