The Census Tract Demographic Dashboard is a NEW application that provides demographics at the sub county, Census Tract level. Arlington is comprised of 59 Census tracts and although the boundaries do not follow civic association boundaries, the data presented in this dashboard provide an overview of demographics that assist in understanding the population in neighborhoods.
The 2019 American Community Survey 5-year estimates are displayed in this dashboard for the following topics: population, households, housing units, average household size, race, Hispanic or Latino origin, age, median household income, household type, household occupancy, college graduates, and top languages spoken at home.
This dashboard will be updated on an annual basis once, American Community Survey data are released by the U.S. Census Bureau every December.
Some examples of how the data can be used from the Census Tract Demographic Dashboard:
• Understanding of Community
• Demographics needed to apply for grants or support projects and research.
• Determine target populations for community engagement.
