Metropolitan Area Situation & Outlook Reports & Analytics

We live in an ever-integrated world. In examining business activity and making plans, we need not only timely, relevant and accurate data but also "jointly dependent" data that reflect how other factors, trends and conditions affect a demographic-economic sector of particular interest. Examining the housing market, for example, requires an understanding of population composition and movement. ProximityOne has been developing and integrating multi-sourced data to address these types of integrated, holistic needs for many years. Our reports, data and analytical resources enable you to quickly, and comprehensively, parse the key elements to better meet your business planning needs.

S&O Metro Reports and S&O Metro Analytics
S&O Metro Reports and S&O Metro Analytics are two distinct but related services. Both are based on the S&O Core Database that is updated continuously. Both services cover/include all Core-Based Statistical Areas (CBSAs) -- Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) and Micropolitan Statistical Areas (MISAs). Use the interactive table below to view, rank, query, compare CBSAs.

S&O Metro Reports
Access frequently updated geographic, demographic, economic reports for each metro. Click a link (column 3) in the interactive table below. The Web-based personal use S&O Metro Reports are accessible without fee. See the summary of topics included in metro reports below in this section.

S&O Metro Analytics
S&O Metro Analytics is a subscription service that provides access to an extended set of data provided in the S&O Metro Analytics in the form of data organized for use in CVGIS ready-to-use projects, Tableau ready-to-use projects and Excel. See more about S&O Metro Analytics below in this section

Use the ProximityOne Metropolitan Area Situation & Outlook Reports to obtain the most up-to-date and market-relevant demographic, economic and business data for any metropolitan area in the U.S. All reports are updated monthly or more frequently. As relevant data are released from key sources, the reports are updated. Each report provides analytically-geared data in charts, maps and tables organized for easy consumption. More than the report alone, the data are tied to datasets that you can access in an integrated manner.
