|The U.S. Census Bureau has begun releasing Profiles of General Population and Housing Characteristics.|
Data is being gradually released by state and today data for New York State was released.
These demographic profiles provide the most detailed data yet from the 2010 Census, including information on age and sex distributions, race, ethnicity, housing and relationships. The profiles are being released throughout May for all 50 states, D.C. and Puerto Rico.
The Census Bureau has created an interactive map to enable users to explore the data down to the city level. By clicking the tabs at the top of the map, users can reveal the demographic data for their selected locations. Interactive options also allow users to make population comparisons between communities across the country.
All the data for a profile can be downloaded in an Excel-compatible file from American FactFinder2. Instructions on how to navigate to the profiles are available on web page 2010 Census Demographic Profiles on AFF2.
