!Interpret data with caution. The coefficient of variation (CV) for this estimate is between 30 and 50 percent.
1 Information on metropolitan status was suppressed for a small portion of sample observations. As a result, population estimates for these areas may be slightly underestimated.
NOTE: A Core Based Statistical Area (CBSA) consists of one or more counties associated with at least one population core of at least 10,000 people, plus adjacent counties having a high degree of social and economic integration with the core as measured through commuting ties. A Combined Statistical Area (CSA) consists of two or more adjacent CBSAs that have social and economic ties as measured by commuting, but at lower levels than are found within each component CBSA. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding. Standard errors were computed using replicate weights.
