ProximityOne Data Service

Many key geostatistical data are developed by the Federal statistical system (FSS). These data are developed by a set of decentralized statistical agencies that have few and varying guidelines about when and how datasets are developed and how data are made accessible. Even when key statistical data are known by location and structure, it can be very time consuming, expensive and error prone to translate the as-is data into an effective data use structure -- and then do it again next month or quarter. In those cases where required data exist and are accessible, the user is left with questions including are these the right data, are they the most up-to-date data, when do these data refresh, what are my access options and other issues. Researchers and data analysts need access to these data in the form of datasets and less in the form of online Web-based data browsing. Interactive data tables are good and play an important role, but limiting with respect to data integration, updating and analytical potential.

This section is about the ProximityOne Data Service.
  • Data resources included.
  • Subscription information.

FSS data resources are essential but not enough. Most longitudinal/time series data have 1) a perishable nature and 2) a lag between the reference data and date of availability. There is always a need for the most current data to understand what is happening now and how demographic, economic and business data are trending. ProximityOne addresses this need by extending series in some cases, providing more up-to-date data. In addition to the gap between the reference data and date of accessibility, a second FSS limitation area is the matter of projections -- what can projected values of some series tell us about the future? The ProximityOnme Situation & Outlook provides these data. A third FSS limitation is the way in which data are tabulated/provided by geography. An example is that while NCES tabulates K-12 school enrollment data by school and school district, these same data are not available by county -- though they can be tabulated in that manner.

ProximityOne Data Service
The ProximityOne Data Service addresses these needs and issues and provides a solution. The ProximityOne Data Service (PDS) provides you with access to multi-sourced geographic, demographic and economic data. Many of the PDS data resources are sourced from files developed by Federal geographic and statistical agencies. In their original form, most are almost impossible to use without restructuring. We reorganize those data so that they are easily accessible, can be easily integrated, and can be directly used in GIS applications and with a wide range of data analytics software.

PDS also includes geographic, demographic and economic data resources developed by ProximityOne.

PDS data are organized into datasets that may be downloaded by subscribers. The datasets are updated continuously throughout the year. PDS subscribers may also access a PDS-only version of the ProximityOne interactive tables that enable selective downloading directly from the table. For example, the county building permits table enables the user to check selected counties/subject matter, copy to clipboard and paste into spreadsheets or save for use in other applications.

This section is focused on U.S. by county data. See related sections for other types of geography.

Purchase PDS Subscription
The U.S. by county annual PDS subscription fee is $3,995. Purchase Individual PDS subscription.
  • Supplemental license required for multi-user access.
  • University department/group license available.
  • The PDS subscription is an "anniversary date" 12 month subscription.
  • PDS subscribers may download datasets that are updated during the year.
  • See terms of use for related information.

Dataset Structure and Use
PDS subscribers may use any version of the CVGIS software to access, manage and use PDS data. All datasets are available in CSV, XLS/XLSX or dBase structure. This document provides and overview of the datasets included. More detail on dataset structure and content is available upon request.

Using the dBase structure:
  • File structure may be viewed/modified using CVGIS dBCreate
  • Files may be exported to alternative structure using CVGIS dBrowse
  • Files may be viewed/queried/used in spreadsheet/grid using CVGIS dBrowse
  • Files may be merged into shapefiles using CVGIS dBMerge
