Hyperlocal Data, Demographics & Directory

An Address Based Research Tool
Input an address and get data & demographs for the local area. The data is for the appropriate Census Block Group which is the smallest geographical unit used by the Census Bureau for reporting certain types of data. You’ll also get a customized searchable map and a customized directory that are based on the geographic coordinates for the address.

An input form for the Hyperlocal Data, Demographics & Directory Tool is contained on the home page of each HomeTownLocator state gazetteer.

Data & Demographics
The data includes population, housing and income information including:

  • The percentages of owner occupied, renter occupied and vacant homes,
  • The average and median home values,
  • The average and median household incomes,
  • The number of people living in group quarters such as dormatories, group homes, correctional facilities, etc.

Customized Searchable Map
The searchable maps are centered on the geographic coordinates for the address. You can search by either a business name or a business category.

Customized Directory
The customized directory also uses a search radius that is centered on the geographic coordinates for the address.

Higher-Level Geographic, Political and Administrative Units
The higher-level geographic, political and administrative units that are applicable to both the specific address of interest as well as the Block Groups are identified and hyperlinked. This will include the Census Tract, county, county subdivision and ZIP Code for all addresses. As appropriate, it will also include the incorporated city, town, village or census designated place (CDP) that encompasses the address.

School Attendance Zones (SAZ)
Where applicable, we identify the elementary, middle and high school that has a school boundary that includes the address of interest. Currently, we have SAZs that cover over 88% of the U.S. student population.

Sophisticated Data Compilation Based on Reliable Resources
The data, demographic estimates and forecasts in the HTL website are based upon July 1, 2015 updated data produced by Esri Demographics, which use the latest US Census Bureau annual American Community Survey (ACS) as a starting point. They then combine additional data from multiple sources including residential postal delivery counts from the USPS, a time series of county-to-county migration patterns from the IRS, building permits, housing starts and local data sources that tested well against Census 2010.

  1. Weakley County TN between Latham and Chestnut Glade was a community of small farms. I remember the 1940s is when we got electricty. What a big change to our lives. Not just battery operated radio , but could listen more now to the radio sll day. This gave west to the TV in 1950’s. Big event was when you went to someone’s house to watch a TV show. Church going folks who loved their schools, had a BIG Fair Day each fall. Showed pies, canned goods, garden grown vegetables, chickens, tobacco, corn, sweet potatoes, and even oldest antiques in the areas. This was not to be out done by each grades handwriting, coloring and art work. The parents sold hots dogs, hamburgers, pop corn and cold drinks. The ladies prepared home cooked cakes, pies at home and completed the meals in lunch room were folks could buy a nice hot lunch. The day was topped off by a basketball game between to rival schools. Usually in our part of Weakley County it was Chestnut Glade vs Welch. The schools had nightly games with each school within its county. Another event many students looked Howard to was the Spelling Bee’s in each class. Winners went to Dresden the county seat to compete against other schools hoping to go to a highest competition. Buses were taken with kids and even some parents. Fun was had by most everyone. We had great bus drivers, in those days kids respected each other and the bus drivers. I remember the mail carriers were always a welcome sight. Even given fresh vegetables as they became available each season. The days before Funreal Homes kept folks over night the family of the deceased were taken to resident with people coming in to pay their respects. Men folk would go and setup all night at the homes so family members could sleep. The community would cook meals and take to the homes as most people had family coming in from out of town. As the years went along the 1980 forward saw a decrease in the small family farms fold. People moved to the cities to get jobs as farming did not give enough income to rear a family. The By Gone Days gives us joy as we look back and think of good friends and find memories. These days we go back home to see relatives , go to cementaries to educate our children and grandchildren of our Heritage. Guess we can never truly instill the wonderful times we had in those days as the ties to such folks don’t exist these days in such a large family of friends and relatives.
