  2000 Census Profiles

  1990-2000 Census Trend Reports
  1. The Abstract from the Census Bureau Tech Doc is a good place to start if you have no idea what a "Summary File1" is.  This is a PDF file so you'll need the Acrobat reader.
  2. The SF1 PowerPoint Slides from the Census Bureau. To quote their summary:
    This presentation has been designed to explain what Summary File 1 is, what data will be available, the tabulations and repeating tabulations, and the geographic hierarchy. It addresses the 6 major race groups and detailed race groups (American Indian and Alaska Native, etc.).

  3. dp1_2k:  Demographic Profile 1 Using Data from SF1, 2000 Census -- One page basic data reports for almost any geographic unit in the state of Missouri and Other U.S. Geographies.  Most reports contain links to dp1_2kt, a Demographic Trend Report 1990-2000 Missouri / Other U.S. Geographies that show comparable data from the 1990 census for comparison with the 2000 numbers.
  4. Geographic Comparison Reports. The dp1_2k profile reports (previous item) give you a set of tables with data about a single geographic area.  If you prefer reports that show most (in some cases all) of the data from just one of those tables but for all geographic areas of a certain type within a certain geographic universe, then these reports will be of interest.  These represent a work in progress.  To data we have "gcr"s for all counties in Missouri, and some experimental ones for various sub-county geography for Boone County.  Look for a great expansion in the selection available in the near future.
  5. Geographic Areas Linked to PB Map Series.  This is a series of Missouri county level html documents containing links from census geographic units to the Census Bureau's PDF format online maps.
  6. The data that is used to create the reports are stored in  SAS(r) data sets that can be accessed by the uexplore application running on the new mcdc2 box.  Use the URL http://mcdc2.missouri.edu/cgi-bin/uexplore?/pub/data@secure to get to the main data menu on mcdc2. Select the directories sf12000x to see the "SF1 2000 standard extract" data sets directory, and sf12000 to see the (really big) complete SF1 2000 data sets.  The Readme.html  files for these two directories are excellent starting points for anyone wanting  to use these data.
  7. Holdings. The previous link to our data archive is the most reliable means to determine just what data the MCDC currently has in its SF1 collection.  As of Aug. 2001 we had processed data only for the states Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland and Delaware.  It is very possible that at some point later this year we may find the time to retrieve and convert data for more or possibly all states, and it is very likely that we'll create some national datasets at some higher levels of geography.  You can, of course, get access to all sf1 from the Census Bureau's Census 2000 Datasets page.
  8. Complete Technical Documentation. This is the Census Bureau's definitive 600+ page manual broken down into smaller pieces (all Adobe pdf files) by the MCDC.
  9. The sf1 data are not provided (from the Census Bureau) at the School District level on SF1. But the MCDC has aggregated the data to MO School Districts. These data can be viewed in the dp1_2k reports (see above) or you can access the data files (along with all the standard summaries) using the Uexplore Application . Note particularly the files beginning with "moschl".   Similarly, we have aggregated the data to create summaries for state legislative districts. See the files with names beginning with "mosenate" and "mohouse."
