get data for your neighborhood (your block group), repeat the steps you
took for getting your map, but instead of clicking the "Map It" button,
click the Go
button (located under the Map It button). The
page will reload, with two new headings at the bottom. Click on Census
2000 Summary File 1 (SF 1) 100-Percent Data.
When the new
page loads, you click on Change Selections
at the top, then choose
. Notice that there will already be one table in the
selection box: H1. Housing Units. Leave it in there, and begin
to select others. Click on P1. Total Population in the upper box to
highblight it, then click the ADD button. You will now see it in the
lower box. Continue adding tables to the lower box, until you have
added all of the following: P1, P10, P13, P15, P17, P18, P31, P32,
P33, P34, H1, H3, H4, for a total of 13 tables (out of the possible 286).
This list represents the minimum necessary for your analysis. If other
look interesting to you, feel free to add them. Once you have all
the desired tables added to the lower box, click Show Table
Print the tables to bring to class.
Collect the same statistical data on Bakersfield, for comparison:
are several ways to do this. The easiest way is to simply use the
Back button on the browser to return to the page that lists the census
tract and block group numbers for your address. Click "County Subdivision:
Bakersfield CCD" to higlight it, then click Go. If you get
lost, you can arrive at this page by repeating all the steps you took
to get statistics on your block group, but of course highlighing "County
Subdivision: Bakersfield CCD" rather than "Block Group" before you click
you click Go (and the page has loaded), youwill see a number of links
at the bottom of the page. There are more than you saw when you
were obtaining Block Group level data, simply because there are more statitics
available for the larger geographic area (city) than the smaller (block
group). Move all the way to the last link, and click Census 2000
Summary File 1 (SF 1) 100-Percent Data.
Just as you did
on the last step, click Change Selections
at the top, then choose
The screen that appears looks exactly the same as
it did when you were collecting your block group data. Follow the
same steps to add the same tables to the box (P1, P10, P13, P15, P17,
P18, P31, P32, P33, P34, H1, H3, H4). If you added any additional
tables when doing your block group statistics, add them here too.

Create tables for your analysis by converting the raw numbers you
printed out from the census web page to percentages where appropriate,
and create tables (in Word) to display those percentages. We will
go over this in class before your tables are due.
