SANDAG has released the much-anticipated 2004 demographic, economic, and population estimates for its Internet-based Profile Warehouse and Data Warehouse applications. Users can now use the tools to access 1990 and 2000 Census data, 2030 Regional Growth Forecasts, and Current Estimates (2004) - providing a flexible, convenient, and user-friendly way to access SANDAG’s vast repository of data for optimal planning and decision-making.
For example, the new 2004 population estimate for the
region is 3,017,204 (1,512,532 women and 1,504,672 men) 858,168 of which are Hispanic residents and 160469 of which are African American. The total population increased by nearly 2 percent from January 2003. The region’s median age is 33.7 years, and its median household income is $52,192 (up 5 percent from January 2003).
The Profile Warehouse provides the public with an easy-to-read report that details region’s population, housing, and economic information. This recently updated application is a great tool for learning about the region’s demographic and economic characteristics.
In four easy steps, a user can access valuable regional statistics data which may prove critical to making informed decisions. The Profile Warehouse contains data from the 1990 and 2000 Censuses, current estimates, and the 2030 Regional Growth Forecast. There are 14 different geographic types to choose from. These areas range in size from the region as a whole to census tracts. The profile output is in PDF format, and provides the flexibility to conveniently save and print.
In addition, the Data Warehouse enables users to generate custom datasets from regional data that can be downloaded into a spreadsheet. In six simple steps, one can select the geographic type (region, city, ZIP Code, census tracts, planning areas, MSAs, SRAs, etc.); select the geographic subunit; choose the dataset; choose the topic and/or subtopic (grouped within the topical categories of General, People, Housing, Households and Families, Economy, Land Use, and Transportation); select an output format; and get the data. Users can then view, save, and/or perform calculations with their customized datasets.
