Metro Area Exports (26k, updated 8/15/02)

This database is the US Census Bureau's Exporter Location (EL) series, and runs from 1993 to 1999. It allocates exports based on the location of the exporter of record, not necessarily the entity that produced the merchandise. (Note: The Office of Trade and Economic Analysis, International Trade Administration, US Department of Commerce, has discontinued this series. No new source for these data has been identified.)

Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) - Special Tabulation

These tabulations were funded by a consortium of federal agencies, rather than as a standard Census product. The data are similar to a combination of the 1990 Census/EEO File and the 1990 Census/EEO Supplemental Tabulations. They serve as the primary external benchmark for comparing race, ethnicity, and sex composition of an organization's workforce and the external labor market, within a specified geography and job category.

Daytime Population (67k, updated 3/30/06)

The first release ever of daytime population estimates from the US Census Bureau has several limitations. Primarily, the data show only workers age 16 and over who commute to work during daytime hours; commuting at other hours, or for other reasons (school, shopping) is not included. Therefore, the data cannot be compared to commuting patterns using the Census Transportation and Planning Package. Areas include the US, Kansas, Missouri, the MSA, the CSA, and Douglas County, as well as cities with either 2,500 workers living or working there.

American Housing Survey - Kansas City Profile, 2011 (265k, updated 07/11/13)

The Kansas City Profile was published by the Census Bureau in July 2013. A brief announcement and analysis of the profile by the Bureau shows no significant statistical differences in the median price of Kansas City homes and the national median. Nor are there significant differences in what we pay for real estate taxes and utilities. We do have significantly more central air conditioning, more carbon monoxide detectors and use more natural gas than the nation as a whole.

The Kansas City metropolitan area was not included in the 2013 American housing Survey.
