Title: Demographic Trends (1970-2010) for Coastal Geographies
Short Name: DemographicTrends_CoastalGeographies
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2013
Abstract:

The Demographic Trends (1970-2010) were derived from Census Block Group Data for 13 different coastal geographies. For a full listing of the geographies available, see: http://www.coast.noaa.gov/htdata/SocioEconomic/DemographicTrends/DemographicTrends_DataDescription.pdf. The land area reported in the county and state file are the 2010 land areas reported in the attribute table of the shapefiles provided by Census.

Purpose:

The purpose of the time series demographic statistics data files is to provide users with socio-demographic information such as population, age, structures, racial and ethnic composition, income contributions, and residential mobility in a format that facilitates comparisons across time and space.

Notes:

10862

Supplemental Information:

Many of the goals of those involved in coastal management and policy include finding the balance in the coexistence of natural ecosystems and human society, therefore a complete picture of the geographic patterns of human activity and its relationship to the coastal environment is needed. The Time Series Demographic Statistics information (1970, 1980, 1990, 2000, and 2010) has been derived from Census Data of all four-decade censuses.

Data Quality

Completeness Report:

All of the data reported in these data files met the QA specifications.

Conceptual Consistency:

Data estimated for counties and states compared well with data reported in the U.S. Census Bureau site. ACS 2006-2010 data estimated in other STICS geographies of interest (ex. watershed) were compared against data estimated for the same geographies of interest when using Census 2010 estimates. The differences found were in the range of 2% difference.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 616082
Description:

The Census 1990 and 2000 block group data were obtained from Geolytics - CensusCDs - Long Form SF3, Release 2.1. The 2010 block group data were obtained from the Census Bureau. For these 1990, 2000, and 2010, Census Block Group polygons were imported into a GIS system to assign these polygons to political, place-based management program boundaries, and watershed/other jurisdictions. Estimates were obtained through a GIS overlay operation of Census Block Groups with all boundaries or study areas of interest. Block Groups that fell partially in the areas of interest were prorated by area to be included in the estimates (block group area proration methodology). The demographic variables data of block groups were then summarized by the study areas of interest. The exception of this process is County and State level estimates which were obtained by summarizing the demographic variables by the existent appropriate geography code in the file associated to each Census Block Group data. For description of jurisdictions or geographies used in STICS, refer to http://coastalsocioeconomics.noaa.gov/coast_defined.html.
