Wessex Pro/Filer Census Data

Data Description | Data Location | Estimates and Projections

Data Description

Wessex Pro/Filer contains, on 6 CDs, all the data published in Summary Tape Files 1A, 3A, and 3B of the US Census Bureau's 85 CD set. Pro/Filer contains all the answers to the "short form" of the 1990 census -- detailed information on race, ethnicity, sex, age and household type, composition and value. It also contains all of the answers to the enormously detailed "long form" on topics from Income to School & Work, Race and Households. For example, there are over 81 variables of educational level and employment status, over 500 variables of household income by race, 70 different categories of family income by family types and presence of children.

Data Location

This Dataset  is site-licensed to Stanford and its data loading program is available for use on the GIS computers in Branner Library. Patrons may select Wessex census data on these computers and transfer it to computers elsewhere on campus.

Estimates and Projections

The Estimates & Projections software and data package from Wessex allows users to create custom tables of demographic estimates (1997) and projections (2002, 2007) for geographic areas of interest. More than 250 variables are available (180 estimated or projected for each time horizon) and data can be summarized by a variety of geographic units, including block group, census tract, Zip Code, and county. Data coverage is nationwide.
