Series of Charts and Maps Depict SAIPE Poverty Data by County

Posted 1-17-2015

We have created a series of modules based on the county level poverty data for 2013 from the latest SAIPE (Small Area Income and Poverty Estimates) data from the Census Bureau. They can be accessed at mcdc.missouri.edu/data/saipe/pov2013charts . We plan to create a custom index page for this directory but in the mean time users should be able to recognize the subdirectory for the state of interest (postal abbreviation as the last 2 characters of the subdirectory name). Each module consists of a short report showing the 12 (or more in a few cases like Georgia and Texas) counties with highest poverty rates, followed by a bar chart of those counties and a chorpleth map. The final graph is a map of all counties in the state showing the poverty rate. These maps will display the county name and poverty rate if you move the mouse over a county. It also supports a drill-down feature so that clicking with a county on the map takes you to a new page: our Applinks page for that county.

New Equivalency Files Relate 2000 and 2010 PUMAs

Posted 1-19-2015

We have created a csv file and SAS data set version of a new equivalency file showing the relationship between the old (2000) and new (2010/2012) PUMAs. We added a paragraph to our All About PUMAS 2010 Edition web page that has descriptions and links to these files.

New Sample Map Displays 2013 Median HH Income for US PUMAs

Posted 1-22-2015

We have created the infrastructure to allow us to do PUMA maps (using the latest 2010 PUMA areas) for any individual state or the nation. To demonstrate the funcationality we have created a demo map that can be accessed at //mcdc.missouri.edu/sasmaps/testmaps/uspumas10/uspumas10.html. This map serves a dual purpose: it shows the spatial pattern of income in the nation, and it provides easy access to the PUMA base maps provided by Proximity 1. To access the latter you just need to click within any state on the map.

BEA Local Area Personal Income accounts Data Updated

Posted 2-04-2015

We have downloaded the latest available Local Area Personal Income accounts from the Bureau of Economic Analysis. Once known as the REIS (Regional Economic Information System) data (but we no longer see this term on their web site) we store these county level economic accounts data in our beareis data directory. There are 11 data sets per state (and 11 more for the US) each containing time series data for a specific topic (income, employment, wages, etc.). The state level data sets have state and county level summaries. The us data sets have nation, state and BEA region data. We plan do do a series of maps and charts based on these data. Watch the MCDC home page for this.

Data Added to kidscnt For 2014 Data Cycle

Posted 2-11-2015

We have done our annual update to the kidscnt compendia filetype. This involves a series of state and county level key indicators related to the well being of children in Missouri. The Kids Count program is sponsored by the Annie E. Casey foundation, and is a national program. But the data collected and reported on for Missouri\ (most of it originating from state agencies, supplented with data taken from federal agencies such as the Census Bureua and BEA) are unique to the state. The key data sets created are the trans2014 and mocomaster2014 data sets. The former contains all of the new cycles of data; it was used as a transaction data set to update the data stored in last year's mocomaster2013 to create the new mocomaster2014 data set. There will be a web site and a publication created by early next year making use of these data.
