City Council Profiles

The progress San Antonio has made toward the Community Vision over the last decade is a result of coordinated and targeted interventions across sectors and organizations. By disaggregating data by race and geography, SA2020’s City Council Profiles offer a deeper understanding of where we, as a community, need to double down efforts, create targeted programs and policies, and distribute resources most effectively.

San Antonio: General Overview

Community Indicators by City Council District

Methodology

The Department of Planning and Community Development published a summary report, Demographic Distribution and Change 2000 to 2010, to present an overview of the San Antonio area using U.S. Census Bureau decennial census Summary File 1 (SF 1) data. The data was provided for the ten City of San Antonio (CoSA) Council Districts and the City of San Antonio in March 2012. If the central point of a census block fell inside a Council District, the block’s values were assigned to that Council District. Council District boundaries were redrawn in November 2012 after the report was published. Demographic profiles for the council districts have not been updated since that re-districting. In order to estimate the most recent demographics for the current council boundaries, CI:Now, SA2020’s data partner for the 2019 Community Impact Report, used the American Community Survey 5-year estimates for 2018 census tracts in San Antonio. The census tracts were compared to the council district boundaries and included in district estimates where appropriate. CoSA includes Fort Sam Houston inside their city limits but excludes Randolph Airforce Base, Camp Bullis, Lackland Air Force Base and Lackland Air Force Base Annex, as they are considered Bexar County. Port San Antonio (formerly Kelly Air Force Base) is a unique project between local, state and federal government and is included in the analysis for District 4 (Census Tract 9801).CI:Now used 5-year estimates for all American Community Survey data at the census tract level and 1-year estimates for all COSA comparisons. The 5-year estimates are 60 months of collected data, so they are the most reliable with the largest sample size but they are also the least current. The 1-year estimates are the most current and the CoSA geography has a large enough sample size to utilize stable 1-year estimates.
