New U.S. national scope state and metropolitan area demographic-economic interactive tables are now available. These tables include approximately 600 subject matter items derived from the American Community Survey 2012 1-year estimates.
Use the interactive ranking tables to view, query, rank, compare demographic-economic characteristics of the population and housing for states and/or metros of interest. A scroll box is provided for each section that lists each of the subject matter items available for each area in the table.
Importance of these Data
These data provide “richer” demographic-economic characteristics for national scope states and metros. While Census 2010 provides data similar to those items in the General Demographics section, only ACS 2010, 2011, 2012 sourced data provide details on topics such as income and poverty, labor force and employment, housing value and costs, educational participation and attainment, language spoken at home, among many related items. The approximate 600 items accessible via the tract dataset are supplemented by a wide range of additional subject matter. ACS 2013 state and metro data become available in September 2014.
