Esri ranks #1 for data accuracy
US Census Bureau counts reveal how well data providers have anticipated and measured demographic change since the last Census. In a blind study, forecast data from five major data vendors, including Esri, was benchmarked against Census data. The credentialed researchers analyzed the entire US at four geography levels: state, county, census tract, and census block group. Not only did Esri have the lowest error level, but it also performed exceptionally well at the more granular levels of geography, which are the hardest to forecast.
