Fifty tables are presented at the block level and higher, 250 at the block group level and higher and 105 at the census tract level and higher.

The second, called the American Samoa Year of Entry Summary File, consists of two data files with the tables PBG7 and PBG9. The third is a document file with the ten tables on selected monthly owner costs.</p> <p>This data collection comprises a codebook and three ZIP archives. The first archive contains the 32 data files in the main release, the second the two Year of Entry data files and the third contains the document file with the ten selected monthly owner costs tables and additional technical documentation.</p>Cf:
