State of the States: Demographic Economic Update

.. tools and resources to examine the demographic-economic state of the states .. in 2016, the U.S. median housing value was $205,000 while states ranged from $113,900 (Mississippi) to $592,000 (Hawaii). See item/column H089 in the interactive table to view, rank, compare, analyze state based on this measure … in context of related housing characteristics. These data uniquely provide insights into many of the most important housing characteristics.

Use new tools, data and methods to access, integrate and analyze demographic-economic conditions for the U.S. and states. These data will update in September 2018.

Approximately 600 subject matter items from the American Community Survey ACS 2016 database (released September 2017) are included in these four pages/tables:
• General Demographics
• Social Characteristics
• Economic Characteristics
• Housing Characteristics

GIS, Data Integration & Visual Data Analysis
Use data extracted from these tables in a ready-to-use GIS project. These ACS sourced data (from the four tables listed above) have been integrated with population estimates trend data, components of change and personal income quarterly trend data. See details in this section.

Metro by Metro: What $100 Buys

.. data and tools to examine the purchasing power of the incomes in different metros and states … this section reviews how you can access to data on what $100 buys by state and metro. Examine patterns of what $100 buys by year, 2008-2014, for all items and by type of goods & services category. Use the interactive table to view, rank, compare the Buying Power Index for each/all states and metros (MSAs). See the main Web page for more details.

What $100 Buys by Metro: 2014

Varying prices by region can be normalized using Regional Price Parities (RPP). The RPP is a weighted average of the price level of goods and services for the average consumer in one geographic region compared to all other regions in the U.S. See more about RPP measures. Using the RPP data, what $100 will buy can be determined by state and metro for the categories of all goods and services, goods, services-rents and other services. See about RPP goods and services types.

In the Boston metro, $100 buys about 90.7 percent of all items goods and services due to the high prices there. $100 in Boston seems more like $90.70 compared to the national average. In the Jefferson City, MO metro, the opposite is true. $100 buys all items goods and services due to lower prices in that metro. $100 in the Jefferson City, MO metro is the equivalent of $121.65 of all items goods and services compared to the national price levels.
• the Boston metro all items buying power index is 90.70
• the Jefferson City, MO metro all items buying power index is 121.65

State and Regional Decision-Making Information

Organized on a state-by-state basis, use tools and geographic, demographic and economic data resources in these sections to facilitate planning and analysis. Updated frequently, these sections provide a unique means to access to multi-sourced data to develop insights into patterns, characteristics and trends on wide-ranging issues. Bookmark the related main Web page; keep up-to-date.

Using these Resources
Knowing “where we are” and “how things have changed” are key factors in knowing about the where, when and how of future change — and how that change might impact you. There are many sources of this knowledge. Often the required data do not knit together in an ideal manner. Key data are available for different types of geography, become available at different points in time and are often not the perfect subject matter. These sections provide access to relevant data and a means to consume the data more effectively than might otherwise be possible. Use these data, tools and resources in combination with other data to perform wide-ranging data analytics. See examples.

Role & Scope
The Metropolitan Area Profile (Metro Profile), a component of the Situation & Outlook, is a core ProximityOne information resource providing insights into characteristics and trends of current vintage metropolitan areas. Metro Profile is available for all metropolitan areas. The Metro Profile also provides a gateway to drill-down demographic, economic and business data for smaller geographic areas (cities, counties and census tracts) within the metro.

Each informal session is focused on a specific topic. The open structure also provides for Q&A and discussion of application issues of interest to participants.

Regional Economic Information System Update

.. per capita personal income (PCPI) is the most comprehensive measure of individual economic well-being. The PCPI has been updated with new estimates for all counties and metros. Among all metros for which the PCPI was estimated, the Atlanta metro was ranked number 154 in 2008 and 269 in 2013. The PCPI changed from $39,889 in 2008 to $41,307 in 2013, a change of $1,418 (3.55%). How might changing economic conditions impact you? How can you use personal income estimates and related measures to assess the impact of regional economic change? This section reviews how you can access and use these data for any county or metro. See the Web version of this section with interactive table.

Update: The Regional Economic Information System (REIS) updates on November 19, 2015 with new estimates for 2014, extending the time series.

PCPI estimates, available as an annual time series 1969 through 2013, are developed as a part of the Regional Economic Information System (REIS). A distinguishing characteristic of the REIS data is that they are a set of multi-sourced data organized and used to estimate personal income. Personal income, unlike money income, is income received by all persons from all sources. See additional information about these data. A second characteristic is, unlike the American Community Survey (ACS), the REIS are not based mainly on a sample survey but rather employer reported data. Third, the lengthy annual time series lends itself to use in modeling and trend analysis based on a set of consistently defined subject matter.
