USA, 15 July 2006: GeoLytics has released 2006 Estimates, 2011 Projections, Consumer Expenditures, and Profiles in two new products. The latest demographic data for both current year estimates and 5-year projections down to the zip code and block group level are now available. With GeoLytics built-in map viewer, one can even make full-blown thematic maps without expensive mapping software. Also available are 2006 Estimates at the Census Block Level.
The 2006 Estimates and 2011 Projections are an important foundation for business and researchers. It provides basic demographic variables for the U.S. population and for 5-year projections of population trends. The 2006 Estimates are a great addition to demographic data collection by filling in the gap since the 2000 Census.
The 2011 Projections build on these data, projecting where population trends are heading in the next 5 years. 2006 Estimates and 2011 Projections includes variables such as total population, population change, total households, race, age, gender, household income, owners vs. renters, and more. The data from Estimates and Projections are available in 6 geographies: nation, states, counties, tracts, block groups, and zip codes. You can also run a radius around a latitude/longitude point.
If one needs consumer expenditures data, demographic profiles, or an expanded set of variables for the estimates and projections, then one needs the Estimates Professional 2006. This product includes all the variables in the standard 2006 Estimates and 2011 Projections and also expands to look at complete break outs of sex-by-age-by-race, household types and household size, median incomes by race, and much more. In addition, this product offers Consumer Expenditures for 2006 and 2011, so users can analyze current and future household spending patterns. Also, the Estimates Professional has demographic profiles for 2006 and 2011 with useful indexes for profiling and targeting customers or resident population. The Estimates Professional is available in the same geographies: nation, states, counties, tracts, block groups, zip codes, and a radius.
GeoLytics’ 2006 Block Level Estimates has current population estimates for the over 8 million census blocks in the U.S. Users can use these granular level data to do statistical analysis of population distributions and to target very small geographic areas. GeoLytics’ expanded population variable list for the block estimates includes sex-by-age-by-race for the most precise population estimates.
