I am working on an analysis of per capita income at the Census Place level. I am trying to get ACS 2019 5-year estimates data with population and per capita income for each Census Place and also for the remainder of each county. Thus the total population would sum to the total for the country overall (I believe this is 328,016,242 in the 2019 5-year estimates).
It appears that the geographic level I need is Place/Remainder by State–County–County Subdivision (NHGIS ID: PLACE_070; NHGIS Code: 070). When I look up the per capita income variable (Table B19301) in the Data Finder, it says that it is available at this geographic level. However, when I download this data, the column for per capita income is completely empty. The column for total population (Table B01003) does populate correctly.
Is there something I am doing wrong? If I instead download at the Place by State geographic level (NHGIS ID: place; NHGIS Code: 160), or at the County by State–Place level (NHGIS ID: county_155; NHGIS Code: 155), the column populates, however these levels appear to leave out any areas that are not within a Place, since in both cases the population sums to just 244,451,098.
I believe I can create the data I want manually by combining the County by State–Place data with the standard County data to get information on the non-Place areas within each county. But before I start on that I wanted to check whether it is possible to download the Place/Remainder by county data directly, since the documentation suggests it is available.
Separately, is there a list somewhere that describes the geographic levels in detail, perhaps especially which ones include the entire country and which ones do not?
