Census 2010 Maps

The maps linked below show the demographic structure of the City at the census tract, block group or block level, a finer resolution than the citywide tables. Data in the complete census is limited to the few questions on race, age, housing occupancy and household structure that were asked of all households in the complete census. For tables and maps showing data on income and poverty, commuting, health insurance, geographic mobility and many other characteristics, refer to the American Community Survey maps and data.
