The resulting photometry is merged with that at JHKs from Two Micron All Sky Survey and a more spatially limited BVI survey from previous ground-based work. We use a mixture of color-color diagrams to select a minimally contaminated set of more than 1600 objects that we claim are young stellar objects (YSOs) associated with the star-forming region. Because our selection technique uses infrared excess as a requirement, our sample is strongly biased against inclusion of Class III YSOs. The distribution of IRAC spectral slopes for our YSOs indicates that most of these objects are Class II, with a peak toward steeper spectral slopes but a substantial contribution from a tail of Flat spectrum and Class I type objects. By studying the small fraction of the sample that is optically visible, we infer a typical age of a few Myr for the low-mass population. The young stars are clustered, with about a third of them located in eight clusters that are located within or near the LDN 935 dark cloud. Half of the YSOs are located in regions with surface densities higher than 1000YSOs/deg2. The Class I objects are more clustered than the Class II stars. Description: The Spitzer/IRAC observations of the NAN (The North American (NGC 7000) and Pelican (IC 5070) Nebulae) complex were obtained as part of the Cycle-2 program 20015 (PI: L. Rebull) in 2006 August 9-11. Additional observations of the "corners" of the map were obtained as part of program 462 in 2007 November 15-27. BVI images were obtained with the KPNO 0.9m telescope on four photometric nights in 1997 June. Astrometry was obtained using the Hubble Space Telescope Guide Star Catalog and the TASTROM task and is estimated accurate to <0.3" (1σ) based on stars in the overlap regions. File Summary:
