Population and Housing Profiles for Massachusetts
1980 STF3 POPULATION AND HOUSING PROFILE FOR MASSACHUSETTS
The 1980 Population and Housing Profile contains data
similar to that contained in the 1990 Profile. On the Data Page is the 1980 Population and
Housing Profile for Massachusetts in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). It contains 12
pages of tables, and is available for Massachusetts, its counties, and all its cities and
towns. It is also available for the U.S., other New England states, Massachusetts
metropolitan areas, and various other areas inside and outside Massachusetts.
1990 STF3 POPULATION AND HOUSING PROFILE FOR MASSACHUSETTS
STF3 refers to Summary Tape File 3 and contains data from the long-form questionnaire that was completed by approximately 300,000 households in Massachusetts, a sample of about one household in seven. The sample data have been weighted to represent the total population. Topics covered on the file include education, migration, disability, labor force, commuting, income and poverty status in 1989, plumbing and kitchen facilities, year structure built, and shelter costs. The STF3 files contain data for states and subareas such as counties, metropolitan areas, cities, towns, places, census tracts, block groups, and ZIP codes. Users should note that sample data are subject to sampling error and other limitations. Visit the Census Bureau's 1990 Census Lookup page on their Internet site at http://venus.census.gov/cdrom/lookup for more information on STF3 data and to browse STF3 data for a wide variety of geographic areas.
On the Data Page is the 1990 Population and Housing Profile
for Massachusetts in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). The Profile contains all STF3
tables in 29 pages, plus a table of contents, and is available for a wide variety of
geographic areas. Nationwide, we can prepare Profiles for the entire U.S., states,
counties, cities, towns, census designated places (CDPs), metropolitan areas, and
urbanized areas. For New England states, we can prepare them for Census tracts and block
groups as well as for Congressional Districts, 5-digit ZIP codes, and Boston Planning
Districts and Neighborhoods as defined by the Boston Redevelopment Authority.
1990 STF4 DETAILED POPULATION AND HOUSING PROFILES FOR MASSACHUSETTS
STF4 refers to Summary Tape File 4 and also contains data from the long-form questionnaire. The topics are the same as on STF3, but in much more detail with extensive cross-tabulations by sex, age, family type, etc. Many of the tables in STF4 are available for very specific race and Hispanic origin subgroups. For example, where STF3 tabulates employed persons by industry using 17 categories, STF4 uses 72 categories, cross-tabulated by sex, and the table is available for 49 separate groups such as Laotians, Cubans, and non-Hispanic Blacks, as well as for the total population.
On the Data Page are the 1990 Detailed Population and Housing Profiles for Massachusetts in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). Sixty-nine Profiles are provided in 73 pages, and organized into the following six subject groups: Educational Attainment & Enrollment; Income; Poverty Status; Employment; Ancestry, Birthplace, & Language; and Housing. The Profiles provided here are for all races combined only, but most of the Profiles (all but 14) can be produced for multiple subgroups (e.g., Laotians, Cubans, etc.) for each geographic area selected. The STF4 Profiles are available for fewer geographic areas than the STF3 Profile. We can prepare Profiles for the New England states and their subareas: counties, metropolitan areas, cities, places and towns of 2,500 or more population, and Census tracts. We may be able to prepare Profiles for other areas for an additional charge; contact us for more information.
