Finding information for San Jose

I’m trying to find the following information for San Jose:

  • Median household income by ancestry
  • Poverty rate by ancestry
  • Housing tenure by ancestry

Though I can find the variables above, I’m not sure how to get the geographic information I need. San Jose is not available under City data, and the PUMAs overlapping with San Joe might be too inclusive of its surround areas. Is there any other way to get city-specific data? Thank you in advance for answers!

You may be able to find all of this information on IPUMS NHGIS, which has a large number of summary statistics available at multiple levels of geography, including city. If NHGIS doesn’t have the tables you need, you may be able to isolate San Jose in the IPUMS USA microdata using a combination of MET2013 with METRO.
