GeocodingDVD Appends Income, Population and More to Your Address File

 GeocodingDVD has always converted addresses to Census Geographies. But now it will also append important demographic data from the US Census Bureau's American Community Survey. So, in addition to basic variables such as Total Population, Age, Race and Hispanic Origin, the 2013 GeocodingDVD will also include Income, Housing Values, Rent, Educational Attainment, and more.

As always the GeocodingDVD will match your addresses to their latitude/longitude coordinates, append a zip+4 and census designations such as block, block group and tract so you can profile your address list The basic GeocodingDVD now has 63 important variables from the 2011 American Community Survey. We also offer a GeocodingDVD with 2013 Estimates and 2018 Projections.

If you are interested in looking at changes over time the GeocodingDVD also comes with 2013 Estimates/2018 Projections which will append 60+ variables from 2013 and from 2018 giving you many of these same variables as well.

And as with previous releases, our GeocodingDVD automatically generates ArcGIS shapefiles for importing into your mapping software. Now in one simple step you can take your list of addresses and create a layer of points that are instantly usable in ArcGIS – no further conversions or processing is necessary!

Our GeocodingDVD appends historic 1970, 1980, 1990 and 2000 Census tract or block group codes in addition to the 2010 Census block code. So if you want to look at historic data you can line it up with your address list. Or if your addresses are based upon an historic survey you can then append historic census data based upon the census geographies that we will have appended for you.

The source data for geocoding addresses are the most up-to-date TIGER/Line® Shapefiles. The demographic data comes from the 2011 American Community Survey, 5-year estimates and if you select the GeocodingDVD with Estimates it will be the 2013 Basic Estimates and 2018 Projections. The GeocodingDVD is a stand-alone product that offers accurate, high-speed geocoding and an affordable annual license.

Income, Education, Housing value, Language all available on 2011 ACS from GeoLytics

The American Community Survey (ACS) for 2007-2011 has Zip Code Tabulation Area data.  This means that you will be able to get zip level data for demographic variables like Income, Employment, Commuting, Ancestry, Housing Value, etc.  The zip code data is only available from the 5-year estimates.  But in fact our ACS is comprised of 3 data sets -- the 1-year, 3-year and 5-year estimates.  For a complete list of variables, please go to our website at http://www.geolytics.com/USCensus,AmericanCommunitySurvey,Data,Variables,Products.asp

The ACS 2011 is in the 2010 census boundaries.  It has all of the features that you expect in a GeoLytics product -- exporting data as a .csv or .dbf file; running maps and exporting them as shapefiles; and as always having access to all of the variables for all of the geographies.  There are over 1,000 tables in the 5-year estimates and over 1500 tables in the 1-year estimates.  The 5-year estimates also include data at the block group and tract level as well as larger geographies like place, county, state, etc.  It even has geographies not normally seen on Long Form (SF3) data sets like School Districts.

Current 2013 and Projected 2018 Data Available from GeoLytics

The 2013 Estimates and 2018 Projections are available
in three different versions: Basic, Professional, and Premium.  The Basic Estimates/Projections has information about Total population, population density, age breakouts, race breakouts, gender, households, owners vs renters, and income. 

The Professional Estimates include all of the basic variables and also include age by race by gender, educational enrollment, educational attainment, family structure, house size, income by race, and consumer expenditures. 

The Premium estimates includes all of the above and family income, employment, poverty, median home value and median rent. It also include additional geographies, namely Places,  towns (MCDs) and metropolitan statistical areas. 

Each of the versions include data at the block group, tract, zip code, county and state level.

The Estimates are based the official 2010 Census (Redistricting and Summary File 1) at the Block level and the 2007-2011 American Community Survery (ACS) at the Block Group and Tract levels.

The Redistricting and Summary File 1 data sets are the central building blocks for the total population, race, Hispanic, age, gender, housing counts, etc.  Whereas the ACS will act as the basis for Income, Educational Attainment, Housing Value, Employment etc.  The use of the ACS is vital since none of these variables are included in the 2010 census data sets. 

To see a list of the existing variables in our Estimates products please go to our website at http://www.geolytics.com/USCensus,Estimate-Projections,Categories.asp
and select the estimate product you are interested in.  For each there is a tab with the variables, methodology, geography, etc.

As has been the case with previous versions, the Estimates data can be exported into comma seperate files, dbf files, maps which can be exported into shapefiles and summary reports for any of the geographies.
