American FactFinder (AFF) is Census.gov's primary vehicle for disseminating Census data. It allows searching and browsing for all kinds of information on geographic areas from the smallest units (blocks) to the largest (the nation). AFF contains information from the most recent and second-most-recent decennial Censuses, plus recent data from the American Community Survey, the Economic Census, and several other surveys.
American FactFinder is set up so that information can be found using many different pathways. The steps below, and in the tabs above, will show you how to use one of the most straightforward methods for finding Census Tract data: the Guided Search option.
There are two ways to choose racial or ethnic data as a topic for searching. It's important to choose the correct method, depending upon whether you want to see data only for a particular group or groups, or if you want to see this data in addition to totals for your Tract.
Option 1: if you want total figures for your Tract
Option 2: if you want data only for one or more racial/ethnic groups, if you want to focus on a particular race or ethnic group, or if you want more detailed information on the group, choose this option.
