I am trying to use data from the 1980 Census (STF 2A) to pull off population counts using Table B8 for Blacks in the South Side of Chicago. If I just pull off numbers for men, I actually get the sum of the male & female counts.
You are looking in the wrong columns. Here’s your solution. The table layout is:
Total Age 0 Age 1 Age 2 Age 3, etc. Female Age 0 Age 1 Age 2,etc. Thus, males are Total - Female. You will have to compute that number.
Make sure you are looking at the correct columns and you should be fine.
