Analyzing Block Group Demographic-Economic Patterns
Block Groups, subdivisions of census tracts, are the smallest geographic areas for which "richer demographics" are developed by the Census Bureau. Block group demographic-economic estimates, as defined using Census 2010 geography, are annually updated beginning with American Community Survey (ACS) 2010. The latest estimates for these 217,740 areas covering U.S. wall-to-wall are from ACS 2011.
We develop geographic-demographic-economic data; integrate multi-sourced data to faciliate analysis and decision-making; and work with stakeholders to facilitate data access and analysis. We specialize in small area data and difficult to estimate populations. This section provides information on new developments and resources, and direct access to many tools, that can faciliate improved data-driven planning and analysis.

Analyzing Labor Force Characteristics by Block Group
Examine block groups by ZIP Code ... use the interactive ranking table below to examine national scope labor force characteristics by block group. Block groups are coded by ZIP Code to facilitate use.
The table contains a row for each/every block group area. The block group (BG) geocode is shown in the first column followed by the corresponding ZIP Code area. See notes about about the BG-ZIP Code relationship. For each BG, the table provides the Census 2010 population and selected labor force characteristic characteristics from the ACS 2010 and ACS 2011 5 year estimates. See a description of items below the table.
The BG dataset was developed using the Situation & Outlook (S&O) Server. See the S&O custom spreadsheet profile that shows the ACS 2011 labor force characteristics for Travis County, TX block group 48-453-001728-3 (among many other items). See the related unemployment characteristics thematic pattern map showing block groups in Austin, TX ZIP Code 78745 (default look-up ZIP Code below the table).
