Summary:
This file contains population counts for Hispanic groups based on detailed Hispanic origin for the five boroughs of New York City. Counts are reported by census tract. The counts are adjusted numbers derived from the original 100% count numbers reported by the Census Bureau in Summary File 1. When the original SF1 numbers were first published New York City Planning staff immediately recognized that except for Puerto Ricans, Mexicans and Cubans (groups specifically mentioned on the questionnaire) the counts for all other groups were lower than expected while the "other" count was higher than expected. The problem related to the way the question was asked. The staff of NYC planning then worked on preparing the data contained here. In addition to the data, which is presented in an excel spreadsheet, there is also a technical paper written by the NYC Planning staff that explains the process.
