Special Tabulation on Aging (STA) is a set of 116 population tables and 69 housing
and household tables which were tabulated by the Census Bureau for AoA from
the Census 2000 sample (“long
form”) data. The topics covered in
these tabulations include age, sex, race, Hispanic or Latino origin, marital
status, income, poverty, disability, and much more.
This tabulation provides much more detail on the older population (60+)
than is available from other Census sources.
The data are
organized by individual tables. Each
table includes data for a state
(including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico) and data are shown for a
number of geographical levels: U.S.
(50 states +DC), state, Planning and
Service Area (
- the geographic area served by a single area agency on aging), county, county
subdivision in 12 states with a population of 2,500 or more, place with a
population of 2,500 or more, census tract, as well as American Indian and Alaska
Native areas. Also, the urban
and rural components of states and PSAs are shown.
The data are in the form of
Excel tables. A free Excel viewer
software may be used by those who do not have Excel.
A menu will assist users to select the information that they want.
