American Community Survey data

The 2007 social, demographic, and housing data from the American Community Survey (ACS) have been released. This is single year data for those areas of North Carolina with populations of 65,000 or more. 2007 ACS economic data was released in August to coincide with the poverty and health insurance data release from the Current Population Survey. You can access all of the 2007 ACS data through American Factfinder. ACS will release the first of its 3-year aggregate data for areas with populations of 20,000 or more in December.

Community Economic Development HotReport

The Community Economic Development (CED) HotReport is the groundbreaking work of the Census Bureau’s Data Integration Division. HotReports analyze data from myriad data sets in- and outside of the Census Bureau and display it visually on interactive web pages. You can look at Guilford County's economic indicators, demographic changes, housing information and more as graphs, charts, and maps.  You can also examine regions, such as the Piedmont Triad. It looks like the feds are finally getting Web 2.0! And, oh yes, it is HOT!

We have just added two new data sources to our list: Geolytics: CensusCD 1980 in 2000 Boundaries and Geolytics: 2008 Estimates and 2013 Projections. Geolytics: 2008 Estimates and 2013 Projections allows users to access US Census data from 1980 and compare it with the 2000 Census data. Geolytics: 2008 Estimates and 2013 Projections provides access to demographic variables for the current U.S. population and for 5-year projections of population trends. These products allow you to create data reports or maps as well as extract the data as a DBF or CSV file. More information on these sources will be coming soon!
