Analyzing extended demographics by census block and higher level geographic areas ... new data resources from Census 2010.
The Census 2010 Summary File 1 (SF1) release was completed August 25, 2011.
The SF1 is the third major Census 2010 data resource following the
Demographic Profile Summary File (DPSF) data released in May 2011
and following the P.L. 94-171 redistricting data released earlier in 2011.
The SF1 contains 100 percent data asked of all people and about every
housing unit on topics such as sex, age, race, Hispanic origin, household relationship, household
type, group quarters population, housing occupancy, and housing tenure.
The SF1 is released as individual files for the U.S., each state, D.C., Puerto Rico and as a national summary file.

... While more than 80% of America's population is urban,
far more than 80% America's geographic area is rural.
... National scope state by state map views.
... Map views based on Census 2010 Summary File 1 urban/rural update (September 2012).

08.07.12. Use Census APIs to access Census 2010 via S&O Server
... use no fee S&O Server to access detailed Census 2010 Summary File 1 data
and data for a wider range of geography down to block/block group level
... most tables/items from Census 2010 Summary File 1
... start using S&O Server today: http://proximityone.com/s&o/guide/server.htm
Use the ranking table at http://proximityone.com/zip-place.htm
to view a city/place by ZIP code and selected associated demographics for each ZIP code portion
in that city/place. Examine how split ZIP codes are split by specific place and non-place areas.
The data are also available as a national scope dataset.
Census 2010 ZIP Code Tabulation Areas (ZCTAs)
and Places geographies are both comprised of sets of census blocks.
Census block level data from the
Census 2010 Summary File 1 (SF1)
have been aggregated into ZIP code-Place parts to develop these data.
Single year of age data are are essential in many demographic analyses and the development of projections.
The Census 2000, and now Census 2010, Summary File 1 (SF1) Table "PCT12"
single year of age population data are widely used
by many types of organizations for many types of applications.
The PCT12 data uniquely provide access to "lowest common denominator"
single year of age detail from under 1 year to 100 years of age for
wide-ranging geographic areas enabling users
to construct age cohort data not otherwise available.
Table PCT12 is replicated for several race/ethnic combinations adding to analytical possibilities.
While the Census Bureau FactFinder (FF2) can be used to "call-up" and display/download the PCT12 data,
it is difficult to use the data directly, or even open downloaded data with a tool such as Excel, and easily view the data.
Effective usage challenges include:
Age detail iterated by gender is cumbersome to aggregate.
Comparison of aggregated gender data for one area to another is tedious.
Labeling age detail in Excel-type applications is time consuming and challenging.
Computing percentages requires additional steps.
Aggregating the data across areas of interest (e.g., 5 census tracts) requires time.
Use the no cost Modeler II (M2) software to analyze the PCT12 data and resolve issues such as listed above.
These are also basic features required for the "next step" primary purpose of M2 --
developing population projections by age-gender-race/ethnicity for
census tracts and higher level aggregates of census tracts (including counties, metros, states)
as well as
towns, school districts, congressional districts, ZIP code tabulation areas among other geography.

These profiles, and ranking table below, were developed with ProximityOne Situation & Outlook
software using the DPFS database.
Note that in comparison to the DPSF data:
These profiles show a small subset of the scope of demographic subject matter contained in the SF1 data.
These subject matter items may be presented at the census block
and any higher level geographic summary area for which Census 2010 data are tabulated using the SF1 data.
Develop similar comparative analysis profiles for any set of geographies in DPSF/SF1 dataset.

Proximity develops geodemographic-economic data and analytical tools and helps organizations knit together and use diverse data in a decision-making and analytical framework. We develop custom demographic/economic estimates and projections, develop geographic and geocoded address files, and assist with impact and geospatial analyses.
Wide-ranging organizations use our resources (software, data, methodologies) to analyze their own data integrated with other data.
