WASHINGTON, Dec. 9, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Black Population in the United States: 2009 — A series of detailed tables with data on a wide range of demographic and socioeconomic characteristics of the black population. Topics covered include marital status, educational attainment, nativity and citizenship status, labor force and employment status, occupation, earnings, poverty and housing tenure. The data, collected in the Current Population Survey, pertain to the non-institutionalized population and are shown for the "black alone" population and the "black alone or in combination" population. These estimates should not be confused with similar estimates based on the American Community Survey http://www.census.gov/acs/www/; where the topics overlap, the Census Bureau recommends that users consult tables based on the American Community Survey when data are not needed for national historical time series analyses.
