Below is a tool provided by the U.S. Census Bureau which provides data on tribal areas across the United States. To use the "My Tribal Area" tool, you can either search the name of the tribe or choose a "State" then subsequently select your tribe of interest from the dropdown menu. The tool provides selected statistics from the American Community Survey published by the Census Bureau based on five-year estimates running from 2010-2014. Each profile provides selected social, housing and economic characteristics pertinent to each tribe.
