The Pop-Facts® demographic profile is a supplemental dataset that includes approximately 100, 250, or 500 data elements (depending on tier of purchase) that describe the demographic characteristics of your community at the state, county and zip code or census tract level. Claritas annual estimates provide richer population estimates than the Census QuickFacts.
All elements purchased will be available on your site’s demographic dashboard.
Which demographic elements are included?
Base counts such as population, number of households, families, and housing units are available at the state, county and zip code or census tract level. The estimates also include counts and percentages for race, ethnicity, sex, age, language spoken at home, marital status, household income, educational attainment, and much more! A full list of demographic elements is available upon request.
