I need 4 pieces of data at the census block group level for the most recent year available:
- % non-white population
- Poverty rate
- % Vacant homes
- Per-capita income
From what I can tell, the American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year summary data for 'Tracts_Block_Groups_Only' is the best source for this data, and the following data fields are the ones I'd need:
B01001_001 SEX BY AGE% Total population%Total B01001A_001 SEX BY AGE (WHITE ALONE)% People who are White alone%Total B17001_001 POVERTY STATUS IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS BY SEX BY AGE% Population for whom poverty status is determined%Total B19301_001 PER CAPITA INCOME IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS (IN 2019 INFLATION-ADJUSTED DOLLARS)% Total population%Per capita income in the past 12 months (in 2019 inflation-adjusted dollars) B25002_001 OCCUPANCY STATUS% Housing units%Total B25002_003 OCCUPANCY STATUS%Housing units%Total%Vacant B17001_002 POVERTY STATUS IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS BY SEX BY AGE%Population for whom poverty status is determined%Total%Income in the past 12 months below poverty level
Of these fields, however, it appears that B01001A_001, B17001_001, B17001_002 are only available at the tract - not block group - level.
I've seen maps and tables in other publications with race and poverty data at the block group level, but can't find it in this dataset. Is there another dataset, or are there other data fields in this dataset, that I should look for?
