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.
