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.
