Welcome to the Demographic Economic Data Explorer (DEDE)!
The Demographic Economic Data Explorer, or DEDE,
is a Windows based application
that enables the user to create custom "geostatistical" datasets
using mainly API calls to statistical data servers.
About. See more detail about DEDE at http://proximityone.com/dede.htm.
In the video we examine use of the most basic operation.
Benefits/Purpose. One main benefit is that you can create datasets containing
the subject matter that you want
for the geography that you choose
from the statistical program that you choose.
the output dataset is structured in dBase or Excel.
it is ready to use with any "next step" application software.
There are thousands of subject matter items from ACS 2020 alone.
.. that is just one annual iteration of one Census Bureau program
There are thousands of subject matter items from BLS QCEW alone.
.. updated quarterly
DEDE provides the capable, fast and easy solution to meet your needs.
.. the above are just two examples; Census 2010, 2020 and many others.
.. it updates "all the time" with new, updated, extended data.
Start-up Example. At start-up, DEDE automatically creates a dataset
for a selected "subject matter itemset" set of subject matter items
for each/all Census 2020 census tracts in California
using data from the 2020 American Community Survey (ACS 2020) 5-year estimates
those data are displayed in the grid.
the dbf file is available on your hard disk.
you have successully pulled off just the data you need from the server.
Illustrative Operation. Using the DEDE User Interface [shown on screen] the user clicks the Start button to extract selected data, show in grid and create a local dataset. We will review that operation here. With DEDE running (we illustrate this live here in the video),
Select statistical program (dropdown)
Select geographic level (dropdown)
Select "subject matter itemset" file
Click Start button
Processing starts; grid populates
Availability. DEDE is frequently updated with both features and as new data become available.
DEDE is available on a subscription basis.
