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:

  Age 0
  Age 1
  Age 2
  Age 3, etc.

  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.
