Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is a Statistical Profile?
Statistical Profiles provide detailed information on demographic, health resources and health status indicators for either, Primary Care Areas or Special Areas. These profiles are updated annually and are available as a free resource.
What is a Special Area Profile?
If the area that you need data for does not fall into one of the categories in which reports are readily available and updated annually, we can create a special profile specific to your area. Visit the Special Area Profile page for more information.
How can I get a Special Area Profile for my area?
You will need to provide us with the 2010 census blocks, block groups, census tracts, or zip codes, place identifiers or street boundaries you wish to include in your special area and we will run create a special area profile for you. You can use American FactFinder's Reference Maps on the U.S. Census Bureau website to help you make your selection of area identifiers.
