General Demographics -- this section
These data are based on the American Community Survey (ACS) 2012 5-year estimates. City/places are defined as the latest 2013 vintage. See notes on importance of these data. See similar ranking tables for:
... U.S.-State-Metro-County | Census Tracts | ZIP Codes | School Districts.
Use the interactive ranking table in this section to view, query, rank, compare general demographics of the population, households and families for these areas. The scroll box shown below lists each of the subject matter items available for each area via the ranking table. In the subject matter items scroll box, subject matter items are organized into to mini-tables with related items. The number at the left of the subject matter item is also used as the short name for the subject matter item in the column header in the ranking table.

Importance of these Data
The ACS estimates and ProximityOne projections provide "richer" demographic-economic characteristics for national scope cities/places. Census 2010 provides data similar to those items in the General Demographics section. Only the ACS 2011 estimates, ACS 2012 estimates and ProximityOne projections provide details on topics such as income and poverty, labor force and employment, housing value and costs, educational participation and attainment, language spoken at home, among many related items. The approximate 600 items accessible via the dataset are supplemented by a wide range of additional subject matter.
ProximityOne develops geographic-demographic-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 tools (software, data, methodologies) to analyze their own data integrated with other data. Follow ProximityOne on Twitter at www.twitter.com/proximityone.
