Protocol - Neighborhood-level Racial/Ethnic Composition

Add to My Toolkit
Description:

This protocol uses data from the U.S. Census Bureau on the racial/ethnic composition of a neighborhood, which can be calculated at the census-tract or block-group level. The relevant variables are available from the long form of the 2010 decennial Census.

Protocol:

The technical documentation for the 2010 decennial Census is available online at American Factfinder (factfinder.census.gov).

Select the Download Center link, and then select Decennial Census. Select SF-1 as the dataset. SF1 refers to Summary File 1 (the short form of the U.S. Census collected on everyone and referred to as "100% data"). Information about race along or in combination with Hispanic/Latino ethnicity is in table QT-P6. The user can select the appropriate geography level (e.g., census tract) by clicking "Geographies" on the left side of the screen. The user can create tables and maps, extract data, or consult technical documentation. Users not familiar with Census data should consult the technical materials available at the U.S. Census website: www.census.gov/prod/cen2010/doc/sf1.pdf.

Secondary Data Analysis

Life Stage:

Participants:

Not applicable: derived from publicly available secondary data.

Specific Instructions:

Depending on the focus of the study, the user can use tables downloaded from the U.S. Census website (www.census.gov) to calculate the following variables:

  • Percent White
  • Percent Black or African American
  • Percent American Indian and Alaska Native
  • Percent Asian
  • Percent Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander
  • Percent some other race

Because people of every race can also be Hispanic/Latino ethnicity, the user can refine these variables (e.g., percent non-Hispanic White, percent Hispanic White, percent non-Hispanic Black, percent Hispanic Black, etc.)

The Working Group suggests that it is helpful for the user to have knowledge of Census data products and websites, such as American Factfinder, or commercial geospatial data products, such as that provided by vendors such as GeoLytics (www.geolytics.com).

Selection Rationale

Measures of racial/ethnic mix in the neighborhood are important and relevant because tobacco use varies by acculturation. This measure, excluding segregation, includes the percentage of each group, percentage of foreign-born, and percentage who speak another language. There is less exposure to U.S. social norms and advertising in ethnic enclaves, and more exposure to tobacco advertising and higher tobacco outlet density in minority neighborhoods.
