  • Total population,
  • Percent 65 and older,
  • Foreign-born population percentage,
  • Percent of the population with a high school degree or higher,
  • Percent with a bachelor’s degree or higher,
  • Labor force participation rate,
  • Home ownership rate, and
  • Median household income.

In addition to these characteristics, more than 40 American Community Survey social, economic and housing topics are now available through the Census Bureau’s data tool, American Factfinder. This includes the first release of local statistics for disability, marital history, VA service-connected disability, health insurance coverage, and year of naturalization.
