Esri Updated Demographics

Esri Updated Demographics represent the suite of annually updated U.S. demographic data that provides current-year and five-year forecasts for more than two thousand demographic and socioeconomic characteristics. Included are a host of tables covering key characteristics of the population, households, housing, age, race, income, and much more. Esri's Updated Demographics data consists of point estimates, representing July 1 of the current and forecast years. View Understanding Esri's Updated Demographics portfolio to familiarize yourself with what's included and how it's updated.

Geographic availability

Esri's demographic databases are available for all standard Census geographic levels (for example, states, counties, census tracts, and block groups) as well as Core Based Statistical Areas (CBSAs), Designated Market Areas (DMAs), Congressional Districts (CDs), Places, County Subdivisions (CSDs), and residential ZIP Codes. But more importantly, Esri technology gives data users the ability to summarize data for any user-defined polygon, such as rings, drive times, or any hand-drawn trade area.

Esri's Updated Demographics provide decision makers the most current information available to understand and track changes in the population, consumer behavior, and broader market area trends.

Users who depend on data should evaluate whether their analysis can benefit from using the most current information available to make important, if not critical, data-driven decisions for the following:

  • Analyzing migration patterns (retirement, employment hot spots, or suburban sprawl)
  • Reacting to natural disasters that force evacuation and relocation of the population
  • Monitoring household income and home value trends
  • Identifying areas with populations at or near retirement
  • Establishing new retail business locations
  • Understanding local labor markets
