I know how much you make, whether you really have that advanced degree you claim and if you are spending too much of your paycheck on your mortgage. Well, not exactly. But I do know as a group and on average what you and your neighbors earn, how much you and your neighbor group make, what level of education you've attained and what percentage of your income goes to paying your mortgage.As well as your race, if you send your kids to private school and whether there are gay couples, the foreign-born or - no!

Median household income in Maryland crept upward by 2.5 percent in 2001, while the median value of a single-family home remained unchanged from 2000, according to new Census Bureau estimates. The data released yesterday also show that the percentage of Maryland's children living in poverty in 2001 dropped sharply from the year before, to slightly more than one in 10. But the numbers come from a sampling of fewer than 8,500 Maryland households, selected from the state's five largest counties and Baltimore City.

Three Maryland communities soon may be part of a landmark federal effort to provide a more accurate -- and timely -- portrait of America's population, as the U.S. Census Bureau seeks to overhaul its once-a-decade national tally.If Congress approves $38.5 million for the first year of a three-year pilot program, Baltimore, Baltimore County and Calvert County would be among 56 jurisdictions nationwide conducting in-depth, annual surveys on everything from income to commuting patterns.The pilot program -- known as the American Community Survey -- could begin mailing questionnaires as early as November, the first step toward giving governments, businesses and others more precise data than they now get from the decennial Census.

The number of immigrants living in U.S. households rose 16 percent over the past five years, fueled largely by arrivals from Mexico, according to fresh data released by the Census Bureau. And increasingly, immigrants are bypassing traditional gateway states and settling directly in parts of the country that until recently saw few immigrants - the Upper Midwest, New England and the Rocky Mountain states. Coming in the heart of an election season in which illegal immigration has emerged as an issue, the new data from the bureau's 2005 American Community Survey are certain to generate more debate.

The silver lining to falling home prices - which have caused so much distress nationwide - is more affordable housing. But a new study suggests that costs are actually mounting for a growing number of people here. The nonprofit Center for Housing Policy's report, released Thursday, found that more middle- and lower-income workers were spending over half their income on housing expenses last year than at the peak of the housing bubble. That was true for 20 percent of these workers in Maryland last year, up from 16 percent in 2005.
