  16 +Deltas
  17 +======
  18 +
  19 +For many tables and fields we were able to calculate the amount of change between 2000 and 2010.
  20 +However, due to changes in the Census questionaire, not all fields have direct equivalents.
  21 +
  22 +For instance: In 2000, questions about family households asked about "own" children in the household,
  23 +but in 2010, the questions were about "related" children, so the figures are not directly comparable.
  24 +
  25 +Also, some questions had more responses available in 2010 than in 2000, or vice versa.
  26 +
  27 +For example: The Housing Tenure table in 2000 includes number of housing units owned. But in 2010,
  28 +the table includes units owned with a mortgage or loan and units owned free and clear.
  29 +
  30 +Because the responses were not separated in 2000, we can only provide a delta for the total number owned.

  45 +
  46 +In order to compare 2000 tracts to 2010 tracts,
  47 +we've calculated how the population and housing units from 2000 boundaries
  48 +would be distributed in the new 2010 boundaries using formulas provided by the Census Bureau.

  16 +Deltas
  17 +======
  18 +
  19 +For many tables and fields we were able to calculate the amount of change between 2000 and 2010.
  20 +However, due to changes in the Census questionaire, not all fields have direct equivalents.
  21 +
  22 +For instance: In 2000, questions about family households asked about "own" children in the household,
  23 +but in 2010, the questions were about "related" children, so the figures are not directly comparable.
  24 +
  25 +Also, some questions had more responses available in 2010 than in 2000, or vice versa.
  26 +
  27 +For example: The Housing Tenure table in 2000 includes number of housing units owned. But in 2010,
  28 +the table includes units owned with a mortgage or loan and units owned free and clear.
  29 +
  30 +Because the responses were not separated in 2000, we can only provide a delta for the total number owned.

  43 +Tracts are created by the Census Bureau to contain an average of 4,000 people.
  44 +Their boundaries may change between decennial censuses and vary in size from city blocks to entire counties, depending on population density
  45 +
  46 +In order to compare 2000 tracts to 2010 tracts,
  47 +we've calculated how the population and housing units from 2000 boundaries
  48 +would be distributed in the new 2010 boundaries using formulas provided by the Census Bureau.
