MCDC Web Tools / Applications
Applinks is a web utility used to link together on a single menu page access to a variety
of web applications and pages -- mostly ours, but not entirely -- for a specified geographic
entity. This page can be used to generate dynamic menu pages which lead to invoking applinks
for any of the supported geographies in the entire U.S.
(New - Nov. 2005)
Uexplore/Dexter is a web application that permits exploring and extracting data from the Missouri
State Census Data Center and OSEDA's extensive public data archive.
Uexplore is the navigator for the application, allowing Windows-Explorer type
browsing of the extensive UNIX directory structure which comprises the data
archive. It leads you to invocations of Dexter, which is the data extraction tool.
Choose between County of Residence and County of Work and pick a county to generate
a report showing where the people in that county commute work or live.
This application has been rendered somewhat
obsolete by the creation of a series of state-based reports (html and pdf formats) that show
these county-to-county workflows for
all states in the U.S.
Dempgraphic profiles for n-mile radii of specified locations
anywhere in the U.S. Data from Summary File 3, the standard MCDC
extract, is used.
This Geographic Correspondence
Engine allows you to access the Master Area Block Level Equivalency (MABLE)
database in order to show relationships among a wide
assortment of geographic units. For example, you can see how ZIP codes
correspond to counties, or how cities relate to congressional districts.
The application also lets you select
geographies within a specified radius of a point and will aggregate the
population or housing units within the circle(s). Most geography is vintage 2000,
with a few more recent.
The application contains a link to the 1990 version
which uses primarily 1990 geography.
There is a PowerPoint tutorial that may be helpful for new users of this application.
This application lets you generate custom extracts of state and county level population estimates for either pre-defined or user-specified age intervals. The data used in this application are the special
"bridged" race estimates from the National Center for Health Statistics (and the Census Bureau) with breakdowns by single years of age, race (just the 4 special bridged categories), hispanic origin and sex. You can choose your geography (by state and level), your time periods (1990 to 2005), your own custom age groupings (under 11, over 27, 18 to 64, etc.), and demographic items of interest (race, hispanic and gender detail).
MCDC Internet Map
Server is an on-line mapping utility which enables users who may not be
familiar with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to view and interact
with a visual representation, or map, of census data held by MCDC for
the State of Missouri.
The Mapper pages are powered ESRI's ArcIMS
County Facts organizes social and economic information from
the standpoint of each individual Missouri County. Counties are often
used to summarize trends within a state because of the availability of
many administrative records such as births and deaths. Since county
boundaries rarely change, they provide a consistent geographic unit for
assessing local change. At the same time, Missouri counties are diverse
and embedded in overlapping regional economies and service areas.
County Facts provides, in a single web page, a comprehensive set of
hyperlinks organizing data tables and other data applications about each
The Center for Agriculture,
Resource and Environmental Systems. This is a very impressive
application that allows access to just about any coverage you can think
of -- both political and natural.
