Semi-custom tabulations allow users to replicate the data content of standard topic-based tabulations for custom geographies or a fixed profile for custom geographies or custom target groups. The fixed profile, which cannot be modified, contains a wide range of census characteristics in a compact and easy to use format. The data content is similar to, but not the same as the standard profile published on our website. Semi-custom tabulations contain three types of tables, semi-custom profiles, target group profiles and semi-custom cross tabulations.
Semi-custom profiles replicate a fixed profile for custom geographies. This format allows for easy comparison of characteristics between geographies. The semi-custom profile content pertains to individuals, families, households, and dwellings. Additional costs apply for creation of custom geographies. See Custom Geography Services (based on a 20% sample). Available for 1971 and 1981 to 2006 Censuses.
