If you're unfamiliar with the purpose of a census and how it's carried out, a good starting place is What is the Census?
2010 Census Questions
Beginning with the 2010 Census, only one census form was distributed to U.S. households, the Short Form, which asked only 10 questions from the following categories:
- Hispanic or Latino origin
- Household relationship
- Tenure (whether the home is owned or rented)
- Vacancy characteristics
What about other demographic data?
Additional demographic information formerly collected through the Census long form, such as income, educational attainment, marital status, etc. is now gathered by the American Community Survey (ACS), a multi-year sampling program.
ACS demographics are not included in 2010 Census tables, although ACS data is in American FactFinder. For example: if you search for a 2010 Census file containing income data, you will get no results because income data was only gathered in the ACS.
