Power of Combining Maps with Data


Accessing & Using Geographic-Demographic-Economic Data

Join us in the weekly web sessions where we review wide-ranging topics on
  • current and trending geographic-demographic-economic characteristics
  • tools to access & use demographic-economic data with other data
  • using decision-making information & developing insights

One-hour Data web sessions are conducted by Warren Glimpse.
  • Tuesdays 3:00 pm ET; Accessing & Using Demographic-Economic Data
  • Wednesdays 3:00 pm ET; Voting & Congressional Communities
      strategists needing to understand district demographic-economic change
      policymakers and staff dealing with congressional policy development
      residents/constituents who are/want to be members of a CC
      learners & researchers regarding CC, CD mapping & geodemographic topics
  • Thursdays 3:00 pm ET; GeoSpatial Analytics
      Visual Data Analytics (VDA) Training & Support
  • gain insights into information change, patterns that might affect you
  • see connectivity details below

Who benefits? Anyone who is directly or indirectly engaged in accessing/using geographic, demographic, economic data for management, analysis or decision-making. While we cover many technical details, managers and leaders benefit from understanding what is possible even though perhaps not engaged in daily data development or analytics. Topics are heavily cross-related. The thread of small area demographics runs throughout the sessions, even though the main topic might be on congressional districts or cities/counties. The sessions provide a forum for problem-solving and continuity not found elsewhere.

E-mail us or call (888-364-7656) with questions/help.

ProximityOne develops and uses tools and data to provide fact-based, independent, non-partisan decision-making information to stakeholders on a wide range topics/issues. We focus on accessing, modeling and analyzing geographic, demographic and economic data to better understand recent trends and project future demographic-economic characteristics.

6. Up to 4-digit (selected) NAICS sector/level projections
7. Individual company projections

Estimates and projections developed for 6 and 7 are ad hoc/custom.
Estimates and projections are developed using the ProximityOne Modeler software.
Model specifications use cause and effect time series simultaneous equations.

Generic County Model ... scroll section .. goto top
Selected equations illustrate structure of the simultaneous equation model. A generic county level model is used but has some specification differences from county to county. The generic county model makes use of the population identity equation:

P[i,a,g,r,t] = P[i,a,g,r,t-1] + B[i,a,g,r,t] - D[i,a,g,r,t] + MD[i,a,g,r,t] +MI[i,a,g,r,t]
  for the ith geographic area; a: age (0, 1, 2, ... 100, 100+); g: gender; r: race/origin; t: year
  total population for any single area, gender, race/origin, year determined by summing over age (a).

Births: B[i,a,g,r,t] determined by fertility rates; where B[i,a,g,r,t] =0 for a>=1 (births only in age 0 cohort)
Deaths: D[i,a,g,r,t] determined by mortality rates
Domestic Migration: MD[i,a,g,r,t] = f1(MD explanatory variables)
International Migration: MI[i,a,g,r,t] = f2(MI explanatory variables)

Race/origin categories include, but not limited to:
Total population
  One race alone
    White alone
    Black alone
    American Indian/Alaska Native alone
    Asian alone
    Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander alone
    Other Race alone
  Two or More Races
  Hispanic/Latino population (any race)

Other identities and cause and effect equations are included in the SEM to determine behavior/values of other items summarized in lists shown below. Examples:
  Employment: E004[i,a,g,r,t] = f_e004(E004 explanatory variables)
  School Enrollment: S052[i,g,r,t] = f1_s052(S052 explanatory variables)
  Educational Attainment, High School Graduate : S061[i,g,r,t] = f_s061(S061 explanatory variables)
  Households with Income $100,000 to $149,999: E059[i,a,t] = f_e059(E059 explanatory variables)
  Vacant Housing Units: H003[i,a,t] = f_h003(H003 explanatory variables)
  Owner Occupied Housing Units: H045[i,a,t] = f_h045(H045 explanatory variables)


Data Access. Groups 1-5 above. Standard estimates and projections by ProximityOne are synergistically developed and released quarterly. As applicable, estimates and projections are aggregated to higher level geography (e.g., states and the U.S.) An independent U.S. and state model is run synergistically with data groups 1-5.

A primary data access option is to download datasets as released.
Data access modules may be downloaded for geographic coverage: U.S., state, county

Users can run the Modeler software on their own computer using the historical database. Additional or variations on model specifications and assumptions can be set/managed by the user.

Data are accessible on release day via VDAGIS tools

01. About Congressional Communities and Congressional Districts .. goto topics
1.1. Congressional Districts
The November 2022 elections determined the representatives for the 118th Congressional Districts (CDs) January 2023-December 2024 session. The 118th Congressional District boundaries reflect the redistricting process based on Census 2020 results.

1.2. Congressional Communities
Congressional Communities (CC) are a concept and development of Congressional Communities, a non-profit organization. CCs have been developed to better enable constituents have their voice heard by policymakers and vice-versa. The approximate 7,400 CCs cover the U.S. wall-to-wall developed by the CC team and typically range from 30,000 to 70,000 population. CCs have been developed based on several criteria and are not arbitrary subdivisions of CDs. There are a set of CCs that nest exactly within each CD. Demographic data have been developed for each CC based on Census 2020 census block data by the CC team.

CC stakeholders may map and geospatially analyze their CCs and CDs.
CC organizations are comprised of residents of their respective CCs.

Additional Information
ProximityOne develops geodemographic-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. Contact us (888-364-7656) with questions about data covered in this section or to discuss custom estimates, projections or analyses for your areas of interest.
