NOTES
* Percent of total
The 2000 Census was conducted in April, 2000. Some questions were asked of all households (Summary File 1); others were asked of only a sample of households
(Summary File 3). Some data presented here may not match 2000 Census information published by the U.S. Census Bureau for the following reasons: sample
census data have been controlled to match 100 percent count (Summary File 1) data; and some minor adjustments were made (such as correcting the location of
housing units that were erroneously allocated by the Census Bureau to roads and open space) to more accurately reflect the region’s true population and
housing distribution.
