Abstract: CACI Marketing Systems repackaged the 1990 Census data and presented them in a large matrix on this CD-ROM. The county demographics matrix has 80 data items as columns and over 3,000 counties as rows. The Census data are collected in two surveys: the 100% count from, the 'short form' questionnaire and the 5% sample of all households from the 'long form' questionnaire. The data items include basic population and housing variables (such as age, race, rent and home value) and some social and economic variables (such as household income, journey to work, and poverty status). There are some data limitations with this product. Only 4 of 17 industry categories and 4 of 13 occupation categories are provided. Also, the income statistics are estimates CACI produced using 1980 Census figures. However, this product is user-friendly. Its software allows you to browse, select and output data items by counties.
