US Census Bureau American Factfinder home page
The 2010 Census includes the most recent information for the City based on a complete count of all households in the City. This data is available citywide as well as by geographic subareas smaller than the City as a whole, including blocks, block groups, and census tracts. Only part of the 2010 Census data is available so far - limited racial and ethnic categories, and age by below-18 and 18 and over.
This is a new version of American Factfinder that will take some getting used to for those accustomed to the previous system.
US Census Bureau American Community Survey home page
The American Community Survey annual statistics are citywide, and are based on surveys of a very small sample of the population each year. 5-year average statistics are now available from the period 2005 to 2009 by Census Tract and Block Group.
