For American Indian and Alaska Native Tables:

Component ID: #ti1195362247

The American Indian or Alaska Native group must have a population of at least 100 at the national-level.

  • This is based upon 2010 Census counts for specific American Indian tribes and Alaska Native villages.

Component ID: #ti2127302420

Step 2-Geographies Available

For the table to be released for a particular population group, the desired geographic area (i.e., the state of Florida) must have at least 50 unweighted sample persons from the population group, based on 2011-2015 ACS 5-year estimates. This requirement protects individual and household responses. View the "SPT Geographies" and "AIANT Geographies" tabs for more details.
