Census Bureau's My Tribal Area

Preview a new Census Bureau tool called My Tribal Area and give feedback!

The U.S. Census Bureau is excited to release a preview of a new data tool called My Tribal Area. This Web application provides easy access to estimates that detail characteristics of the people, jobs, housing, economy, and educational levels in America's tribal areas and reservations. The estimates come from responses to the American Community Survey over a five-year period, from 2010 to 2014.

My Tribal Area was designed to give you quick and smooth access to information. For example, you can search for tribal areas using a type-ahead search by tribal area name or a drop-down menu to select a particular area in a state. A glossary is available to help you understand how the application defines the types of reservations and tribal areas.

We encourage you to explore this preview of My Tribal Area, and we welcome your comments and suggestions. You can use the feedback form that's available in the app. An updated release scheduled for this winter will make My Tribal Area even more comprehensive, with map images and descriptive legends for each tribal area, as well as estimates that include the years 2011 to 2015.   Be on the look out for our announcement when the full My Tribal Area application is released.
