NOTE: Data in this table are from the American Community Survey (ACS) and may differ from those shown in tables based on the Current Population Survey (CPS). Although the ACS conducts sample surveys of the entire population residing within the United States, this table includes only the population living in households; it excludes persons living in institutionalized group quarters (e.g., prisons or nursing facilities) and those living in noninstitutionalized group quarters (e.g., college or military housing). Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding.
