About this Data

This story provides a summarized demographic profile for each of the Wards and Superwards in the City of Norfolk. A citywide profile is also provided.

How was this resource created?

City staff used ESRI ArcGIS software to create the demographic estimates. ESRI compiles data from the US Census Bureau and American Community Survey (ACS) to generate estimates based off provided custom geographic areas. The data used to create these visuals is not meant to represent Norfolk's authoritative source for City, Ward, or elections purposes. ESRI and ACS Demographics represent annually updated U.S. demographic data that provides current-year and five-year forecasts for more than two thousand demographic and socioeconomic characteristics.
