Census 2010 Data Is Instantly Usable in Maps and Easy-to-Read Reports

May 23, 2011

Redlands, California—Today, Esri announces its first release of Census 2010 data. This release includes not only Census 2010 Redistricting data, but also updated 2010 geographic boundaries. Census 2010 data is available immediately from Esri in reports, dynamic color-coded maps, Smart Map Search, and in geographies that are not available from the Census Bureau.

"Esri is doing more than providing our users with 2010 Census data," says Catherine Spisszak, Esri Data product manager. "We are providing 2010 Census data in a way they can actually use it—in easy-to-read reports, powerful maps, and in nonstandard geographies."

For ease of use, the Census 2010 Profile report from Esri Business Analyst Online (BAO) and Community Analyst displays the data in counts and percentages for any geography. Mapping tools in Business Analyst Online and Community Analyst enable users to quickly thematically map the Census 2010 data in 2010 geography by selecting colors, ranges, and the zoom level.

In addition to mapping tools, Esri provides Census 2010 data for geographies not supplied by the Census Bureau, such as ZIP Codes and user-defined polygons, including drive times, rings, and hand-drawn trade areas.

Esri also provides the Census 2010 data for standard census geographies such as states, counties, census tracts, and block groups.

Subscribers and guest users can access the Census 2010 data immediately in Business Analyst Online and Community Analyst. Business Analyst Desktop users can access the Census 2010 data by choosing the Show Online Reports option from Preferences. Business Analyst Server users can integrate the Census 2010 data and reports instantly via the Business Analyst Online APIs.
