- Represents or rounds to zero.
1A 90-percent confidence interval is a measure of an estimate's variability.  The larger the confidence interval in relation to the size of the estimate, the less reliable the estimate.  Confidence intervals shown in this table are based on standard errors calculated using replicate weights instead of the generalized variance function used in the past.  For more information see "Standard errors and their use" at <www.census.gov/hhes/www/p60_243sa.pdf>.
2 Consistent with 2011 data through implementation of Census 2010-based population controls.
3Details may not sum to totals because of rounding.
