Missouri

State Data Center Update: “MSDC has recently released “Standard Summary File 1 (2010 Census) Extract Assistant.” “This application is intended for the more casual user of census data who just want to create a spreadsheet, and/or possibly a SAS or SPSS data set, containing basic data for specific geographic units within a specified state. The data items (“variables” or columns) are a distillation of the much larger and detailed summary files as released by the Census Bureau. Instead of hundreds of detailed tables with thousands of data cells (which are also available on our site in the sf12010 filetype directory) we offer access to about 200 key columns/variables per geographic area, about half of which are derived percentages. This front end takes care of choosing the appropriate data set for you (based on the state and geographic summary unit(s) you choose), handles the generation of a “filter” to select the geographic unit(s) that you choose here from a select list, and then creates the list of variables by topic that you choose here (and even takes care of ignoring any variables that may not be available for smaller sub-tract units). You could use this application then to easily generate (for example) an Excel spreadsheet containing basic data regarding population trends, race and hispanic origin for the state and all counties in California Or, you could use it to generate a SAS data set with all 200+ variables for all the counties, county subdivisions (towns) and ZIP codes (ZCTAs) in Pennsylvania.” Output is available in multiple formats.
