Census ACS Tract Data Feed Updated
We've updated the CDXZipStream Census Tract data feed
with the latest information from the American Community Survey for
the years 2014-2018. The feed includes all census tracts in
both the U.S. and Puerto Rico, and covers a wide array of demographic
data such as: age, individual earnings, educational attainment,
household size, household income, housing value and rent, marital
status, population, race, and school enrollment. Most of these
where relevant are also provided by gender.
Since census tracts are on average about half the size
of ZIP Codes, they offer a more precise demographic snapshot. A
complete listing and description of each demographic variable is
provided in the downloadable document CDXZipStream
Data Feeds and Definitions.
