Introduction

Esri is an industry leader in reviewing and processing census information as well as understanding and accurately updating dynamic census geography and demographic trends. Leveraging nearly forty years of experience, Esri produces independent demographic and socioeconomic updates and forecasts for the United States using a variety of data sources to update small areas, beginning with the latest Census base and adding a mixture of administrative records and private sources to capture change. Alongside these Updated Demographics, Esri provides Census and ACS demographics as a point of reference for understanding growth in an area and to provide additional detail for some topics.

Esri Demographics serve as the foundation for Esri's lifestyle and behavioral datasets: Tapestry Segmentation, Consumer Spending, and Market Potential.

Esri partners with authoritative providers of Places and Points-of-Interest (POI), Crime, and Traffic data.
