2000 Census and Change (1990 - 2000)
Data from the 2000 Census offer detailed information on New York City, enabling users to paint statistical portraits in a number of ways. Information is presented in the following sections:

Profiles of Census characteristics provide a large number of data items for various geographic areas. For example, the Socioeconomic Profiles provide six pages of characteristics that include high school graduates, median family income, and percent below poverty, as part of a profile that is displayed separately for each Community District.
Tables of Census characteristics provide detailed information on a single topic at various geographic levels. For example, detailed data on all income categories for persons in all 59 Community Districts is presented in a single table.
Maps of selected Census characteristics provide information on the distribution of a specific characteristic. For example, the number of children below the poverty line is mapped for all 2,217 census tracts in New York City.
Essential information for effective use of the data, especially Community District tabulations.
