"Suppressed" indicates that data are unavailable, an estimate is unreliable, or data are suppressed because too few cases were recorded in the time period.

[1] Note that the total population number and the sum of population breakdowns under Demographics in the city profiles may be different. The population estimate from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Population Estimates program provides the most current snapshot of population for cities of this size and is recommended to be used for population counts. This estimate, however, does not provide breakdowns by different population characteristics. For population breakdowns by race and ethnicity, age, and gender, the American Community Survey (ACS) population counts are used instead.

[2] The American Community Survey uses a subset of the population for whom household income is known to calculate poverty figures. Any individual whose poverty status or income is unknown is excluded from poverty tabulations. For this reason, the population for whom poverty status is determined is slightly smaller than the total population. See more information here: https://www.census.gov/topics/income-poverty/poverty/guidance/poverty-measures.html.

[3] Households paying 30% or more of their gross income for housing are considered to be cost burdened.
