What's new

Information about what's new in Esri Demographics is provided below.

The June release includes updates to demographic data in the United States, Mexico, Caribbean, France, and Australia.

United States

The June release includes updates to the following datasets:

2021/2026 Esri U.S. Demographic Updates

This release includes the 2021/2026 demographic forecasts for the U.S. which address market shifts in home value, employment, income, and net worth following the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2021/2026 demographic forecasts include the following new items:

American Community Survey 2015–2019

First released by Esri in  March 2021, the American Community Survey (ACS) data is re-released in new 2021 geographies. The ACS is the de facto replacement for sample data from the decennial census. Releases for all areas down to block groups represent averages over 60 months, or five years (2015–2019, inclusive).

2021 Tapestry Segmentation

Tapestry Segmentation is a market segmentation system designed to identify consumer markets in the United States. Reflecting the increasing diversity among American consumers, Tapestry includes 67 distinct market segments and 14 summary groups. Tapestry Segmentation data is updated for 2021 and includes new Tapestry names for eight segments and one LifeMode group.

2021/2026 Consumer Spending

Esri combined the latest Consumer Expenditure Surveys (CEX), 2018–2019, from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) to estimate current spending patterns. The Consumer Spending data  is updated for 2021 and 2026. New data variables include spending on bike sharing/e-scooters.

2021 Market Potential

Esri's 2021  Market Potential data  measures the likely demand for a product or service in an area. With this release, Esri computes Market Potential by combining 2021 Tapestry Segmentation data with Doublebase 2020 data from MRI-Simmons. Doublebase 2020 is an integration of information from four consumer surveys. Each survey respondent can be identified by Tapestry segment, so a rate of consumption by Tapestry segment can be determined for a product or service for any area. With this change in surveys, there are new variables including voting, organic foods, 'SmartHome' tech, and more.

2021 Business Data

Esri extracts its Business Data from a comprehensive list of businesses licensed from Data Axle. This business list contains data on more than 13 million U.S. businesses—including the business name, location, franchise code, industry classification code, number of employees, and sales volume—that is current as of April 2021.

This release contains 2021 Business Summary data based on Data Axle data (January 2021). This data summarizes the Data Axle business listings by sales volume and number of employees into various industry groups defined by SIC Codes and NAICS Codes.

Traffic Counts

The Traffic Counts data  from Kalibrate tracks peak and low traffic volume by the number of vehicles that cross a certain street location. The Traffic Counts data comes from the Q2 2021 release from Kalibrate.

Crime Indexes

Crime Indexes provide a view of the relative risk of specific crime types. It is not a database of actual crimes, but rather the relative risk in an area compared to the United States in its entirety. The database includes indexes for several categories of personal and property crime. The  Crime data  comes from the 2021A release from Applied Geographic Solutions (AGS).

Mexico

Mexico is updated with new demographic data (from 2018 to 2020) from Michael Bauer Research GmBH. There is an additional micro level of geography for more detailed analysis.

Caribbean

American Community Survey

Demographic variables include Age, At Risk, Education, Health, Households, Housing, Income, Jobs, Marital Status, Population, Poverty, and Race. Additional information about total population by age, vacant housing units, and tenure by household income is included in this update. With the 2015–2019 data, there is now a complete overlap with the variables offered for the United States and Puerto Rico.

See the release notes for each country for more information.

October 2020

The October ArcGIS Online release includes the following updates to the Esri Demographics portfolio:

United States

U.S. Crime Data from AGS (2020A) This release includes a correction to place-- and city-level crime data. The data has been updated to correct an issue with the Places (cities) geography-level data. Approximately 1 percent of places had Total Crime Index values change by more than 10 percent.

International data from Michael Bauer Research

The following countries were updated with new demographic data (from 2018 to 2020) from Michael Bauer Research GmBH:

  • Asia (22)—Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, China, Georgia, India, Indonesia, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Macao, Malaysia, Mongolia, Pakistan, Philippines, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Tajikistan, Thailand, Uzbekistan, Vietnam
  • Middle East (9)—Bahrain, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates (UAE)

Some consumer spending and purchasing power categories have large differences compared to previous versions due to new input data and changes in international exchange rates, national growth, and demographics. These differences are expected and are not the result of changes to any underlying forecast models.

To improve the data quality for age groups, national-level input data is now being used, which is often more current than regional input data. This methodological enhancement and the use of new regional publications of the statistical offices are reasons for larger-than-normal shifts in population within the age groups for some Asian countries. These shifts in age distribution can also have an effect on population by education.

See the release notes for each country for more information.
