The SF4 profile contains detailed tabulations of sample data collected from 15.8 percent of the total housing units in the United States, which were then weighted to represent the total population. Detailed tables for specific race/ethnic and ancestry groups include social and economic characteristics focusing on sex; households and families; marital status; grandparents as caregivers; language and ability to speak English; place of birth, citizenship status, and year of entry; migration; place of work; commuting; school enrollment and educational attainment; veteran status; disability; employment status; industry, occupation, and class of worker; income; poverty status; tenure, occupancy, and vacancy characteristics; units in structure; year structure built; year household moved into unit; gross/contract rent; gross rent as a percentage of household income; value of home; mortgage status and selected monthly owner costs. These tables are repeated for 335 detailed population groups subject to a population threshold of 100 or more persons and 50 or more unweighted sample cases in a specific geographic area.
These profiles are available for the state, counties, places, census tracts, and metropolitan areas.
This file contains summary population counts for two universes, total population and population 18 years and over. The data were derived from the basic 100-percent questions asked on all census questionnaires.

- Table Two: Population by Race/Ethnicity, Incorporated Cities by County
- Table Three: Population by Race, One or More Races, California
- Table Four: Population by Race/Ethnicity, One or More Races, California
Comparability Files are intended to generate comparable estimates of selected demographic, socio-economic, and housing variables across decennial censuses. Due to changes in population and street patterns, some census tract boundaries are adjusted with each census. Comparability files are the only source of census data that normalize changes in tract boundaries from one census to the next. The State Data Center (SDC) has prepared two separate comparability files:
- The 1970–2000 file provides an analysis of changes that took place across the 1970, 1980, 1990, and 2000 censuses; a total of 27 variables are included and all variables are normalized to 1990 census tract boundaries. This file is available at no charge.
- The 1990–2000 file includes more than 125 variables from the 1990 and 2000 censuses with all variables normalized to 2000 census tract boundaries.
