Reading the Chart:

Total Population counts people. Here the colored bars represent percentages of the highest population of any county in the state. For example, the county with the highest population will have a colored bar that fills the cell. A county with half that many people will have a colored bar that fills half the cell. For small percentages the bar does not appear.

Under the Occupied housing units heading, the Total, Owner, and Renter subheadings are counts of housing units. The Owner and Renter values add up to the Total value. Similarly to Total Population, the colored bars represent percentages of the highest housing count of any county in the state.

The entries under the Average household size heading are averages of the number of people in each housing unit. Here the colored bars indicate a percentage of an arbitrary maximum (5). For example, the colored bar for an average family size of 2.5 fills half of the table cell.

The entries under the Percent heading are percentages. The colored bars fill the cells in proportion to the percentage value.

Census Department definitions:

Housing unit. A housing unit may be a house, an apartment, a mobile home, a group of rooms, or a single room that is occupied (or, if vacant, is intended for occupancy) as separate living quarters.
Occupied housing unit. A housing unit is occupied if it is the usual place of residence of the person or group of people living in it at the time of enumeration or if the occupants are only temporarily absent; that is, away on vacation or business. The occupants may be a single family, one person living alone, two or more families living together, or any other group of related or unrelated people who share living quarters.

Abbreviations used in location names: Co.=County, C.A.=Census Area, Pa.=Parish, Mu.=Municipio.

Please note that if you set your browser to display very large text sizes, the table cell sizes will change, and the lengths of the colored bars will not be accurate, although they will still show proportions.
