Census Reporter

Census Reporter is a Knight News Challenge-funded project to make it easier for non-researchers to write stories using information from the U.S. Census bureau. Place profiles and comparison pages provide a friendly interface for navigating data, including visualizations for a more useful first look.

Other Census Data

These are data sets from non-census years such as intercensal estimates, or data sets and maps created by MARC from census data.

Other Source Data

These data sets are from sources other than the US Census Bureau. They include: 1) data from the states; 2) data from other federal departments; 3) MARC reports from these non-census data; and 4) private source data, purchased by MARC to enhance our databases, and made available in summary form.

Births and Deaths

An important building block in the production of population estimates is found in administrative records of births and deaths. An increase or decrease in either one or both indicators must be examined to determine a trend or an aberration.

To facilitate use of these data sets, they have been divided by geographic levels:

States and Counties (230k, updated 07/26/11) - includes selected characteristics for Kansas and Missouri, the 17 counties in the Kansas City-Overland Park-Kansas City CSA and Douglas County, KS (Missouri through 2008 and Kansas through 2010) with some data going back to 1911.

Selected Cities (102k, updated 04/01/15) - includes, among others, the largest cities in the CSA, most starting in 1980 (Missouri through 2012 and Kansas through 2013).

ZIP Codes (933k, updated 12/15/10) - includes all the ZIP codes in the CSA from 1980 through 2008.
