Census 2010 Data Available for TransCAD

NEWTON, MASSACHUSETTS (USA) - Current TransCAD users can now obtain the latest census geography with demographic data from the 2010 Census. The summary layers included with this download are: Tract, Place, Combined Statistical Area, Core Based Statistical Area, Core Based Statistical Area Metropolitan Divisions, County, and State.

Each of these files contain demographic variables based on the data reported in the 2010 Census and the American Community Survey. The 2010 Census was taken on April 1, 2010 and produced counts based on questions asked of each member of a household concerning their age, sex, race (one or more), Hispanic origin, relationship to the head of household, and whether they sometimes live somewhere else. The householder was also asked about additional people in the house and whether the house was owned (with or without a mortgage or loan), rented, or occupied without payment of rent. The American Community Survey (ACS) 5-Year Summary data, contains five-year estimates rather than counts, based on questions asked of about three million housing units annually, such as income, education, occupation, and mode of travel to work.

The following table lists the demographic data fields included with the U.S. Census geographic boundary layers available here for download:
