Using Data

Difference between Data Profile and Summary File API?

What is the difference between the Data Profile data and the Summary file data. It seems very similar, with some overlap, but also slightly different, and I don't understand the relationship between the two.

 

Is the Summary File information used to create the Data Profiles?

Are these two totally different surveys with different metrics?

 

It's not clear to me when I should use the Summary File vs Data Profile. I've leaned Data Profile as the summary file data is simply daunting in scope.

 

I'm very new to this census data and have tried to figure this out by reading the docs but I am coming up short.
