U.S. State Metro County Demographic-Economic Ranking Tables
-- Social Characteristics
New December 2012. The U.S. national scope U.S. State Metro County Demographic-Economic Dataset contains approximately 600 subject matter items tabulated for the U.S. and each state, metro and county organized into four subject matter groups:
Social Characteristics (this section)
These data are based on the American Community Survey (ACS) 2011 5-year estimates. See notes on importance of these data. See corresponding ranking tables for: Census Tracts | Cities | School Districts | ZIP Codes.
Use the interactive ranking table in this section to view, query, rank, compare social characteristics of the population, households and families in these areas. The scroll box shown below lists each of the subject matter items available for each area via the ranking table. 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.
Use the S&O Server for more detail, alternative formats and data extraction.

Importance of these Data
These data provide "richer" demographic-economic characteristics for the U.S., states, metros and counties. While Census 2010 provides data similar to those items in the General Demographics section, only ACS 2010 and ACS 2011 sourced data 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. ACS 2012 school district data become available in December 2013.
