Errors in some rows of the Selected Economic Characteristics (DP03) and Selected Housing Characteristics (DP04) Data Profiles for the following ACS products: 2010 ACS 1-year, 2008-2010 ACS 3-year and 2006-2010 ACS 5-year.

The Census Bureau has discovered errors in some rows of the Selected Economic Characteristics (DP03) and Selected Housing Characteristics (DP04) Data Profiles available on American FactFinder.

There was a programming error with some non-numeric values in these two profiles. Some cells that should contain non-numeric values such as "(X)" or "2,500+" instead contain incorrect text or numeric values. The error mainly impacts estimates of median housing value and median income, where those values are particularly low or high.

We have removed the Selected Housing Characteristics Data Profiles from American FactFinder for the 2010 1-year estimates, the 2008-2010 3-year estimates, and the 2006-2010 5-year estimates. We plan to release corrected versions of these tables and of the Selected Economic Characteristics Data Profiles on January 26, 2012.
