These Legislative District Quick Facts tables are summary profiles showing frequently requested data items from two Census Bureau programs: the 2000 Census and the 2007-2011 American Community Survey. These items also show how Nebraska’s Legislative Districts have changed since 2000 and demonstrate the wide variety of data available. These same data also are available for all of Nebraska’s counties and communities.

The tables in this report are based on the District Boundaries for the 102nd Legislature and do not reflect the boundary changes following the 2010 Census. The new Legislative District boundaries will be used when the 2008-2012 ACS data are released in December 2013.

On December 6, 2012, the U.S. Census Bureau released five‐year American Community Survey (ACS) estimates for the combined years of 2007 through 2011, making available social, economic, housing and demographic statistics for every community in Nebraska and the nation. Also available are estimates for Nebraska’s Legislative Districts.

The data are based on a rolling national sample survey mailed each year from 2007 through 2011. By pooling several years of survey responses, the ACS can generate detailed statistical portraits of smaller geographies such as legislative districts. The Census Bureau issues new sets of these five-year estimates every year, permitting users to track trends in even the smallest of areas over time. This is the third set of five-year estimates. Data for the 2005-2009 period were released in December 2010, and data for the 2006-2010 period were released in December 2011.

The new 2007‐2011 ACS estimates are not related to the 2010 Census population counts that have been released. The ACS complements the decennial count and provides estimates of population characteristics that are far more detailed than the basic demographic information that has been released from the 2010 Census.

Because it is a survey based on a sample of the population rather than the entire population, the ACS produces estimates, not actual counts. Since it is based on a sample, the ACS also is subject to sampling error. To aid data users, the Census Bureau calculates and publishes a margin of error for every ACS estimate it produces. These margins of error are not included in the following tables.
