About the GIS Project & ACS 2014 Dataset
The ACS 2014 dataset used to create the view above was developed using the ProximityOne Demographic-Economic Data Extraction (DEDE) software. The DEDE API tools were used to extract ACS 2013 items and ACS 2014 items. Those data were then integrated into a metro shapefile using the ProximityOne CV XE GIS software. Once the 2013 and 2014 data are available, wide-ranging analytics can be performed. Map views shown above are provide examples. Subject matter items are listed above.
The larger map view profile shows field values for a selected CD (see pointer). For example, the MHI2013 (median household income, 2013) for MO 04 is $43,857 and MHI2014 (median household income, 2014) $45,674. 2014 marks the first time that analysts are able to compare annual change in $MHI (or any other ACS item) for the 114th Congressional Districts.
U.S. Median Household Income and Median Family Income
ACS Income of Households ... includes the income of the householder and all other individuals 15 years old and over in the household, whether they are related to the householder or not. Because many households consist of only one person, median household income is usually less than median family income.
The median divides the income distribution into two equal parts: one-half of the cases falling below the median income and one-half above the median. For households and families, the median income is based on the distribution of the total number of households and families including those with no income. The median income for individuals is based on individuals 15 years old and over with income.
