Abstract: The State of Metropolitan America is a dynamic, interactive website that allows users to display, map, and download data for the nation's 50 states (plus the District of Columbia), 100 largest metropolitan areas (having populations of at least 500,000), and their cities and suburbs on over 300 social, demographic, and economic indicators. It contains data for 2000, 2006, 2007, and 2008. Its major subject areas are population and migration, race and ethnicity, immigration, age, households and families, educational attainment, work, income and poverty, and commuting. Most of its data comes from the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey (ACS) via Census Bureau's American Factfinder tool. From the interactive map, users may choose to download a CSV file that includes all years of data for that indicator, or a ZIP file that includes all years of data for all indicators in that subject area. From the geo-profile page, users may choose to download a CSV file that includes the geography type, year, and indicator currently in view, a CSV file that includes the same indicator for all geographies and all years, or a ZIP file that includes all indicators in the subject area for all geographies and all years.
