Data Quality

Accuracy:

ACS data: Data are based on a sample and are subject to sampling variability. The degree of uncertainty for an estimate arising from sampling variability is represented through the use of a margin of error (margin of error was omitted from this product but can be found in the original source data). In addition to sampling variability, the ACS estimates are subject to non-sampling error. The effect of non-sampling error is not represented in these tables.

For additional information on the accuracy of ACS data please see https://www2.census.gov/programs-surveys/acs/tech_docs/accuracy/MultiyearACSAccuracyofData2016.pdf. For

Census data: While it is impossible to completely eliminate non-sampling error from an operation as large and complex as the decennial census, the Census Bureau attempts to control the sources of such error during the collection and processing operations.

For additional information on decennial census methodology, accuracy and error please consult "2010 Census Demographic Profile Summary File", Chapter 5 - Operational Overview and Accuracy of the Data (https://www2.census.gov/programs-surveys/acs/tech_docs/accuracy/MultiyearACSAccuracyofData2016.pdf).

Horizontal Positional Accuracy:

Maximum scale of intended use is 1:80,000.

Completeness Report:

For additional information on decennial census methodology, accuracy and error please consult "2010 Census Demographic Profile Summary File", Chapter 5 - Operational Overview and Accuracy of the Data (https://www2.census.gov/programs-surveys/acs/tech_docs/accuracy/MultiyearACSAccuracyofData2016.pdf).

Conceptual Consistency:

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 1115068
Description:

Join the downloaded tables to the updated Coastal Counties layer using the County FIPS attribute to copy the median household income from the ACS table and the total population and total housing units from the Census table into the associated attributes in the Coastal Counties layer.

Download Census and ACS data from American Factfinder as comma-delimited (*.csv) documents. Delete extraneous attributes.

Merge select omitted independent cities from TIGER/Line Shape with Coastal Counties (Washington DC, Fairfax city, Falls Church city, Fredricksburg city, Manassas city, Manassas Park city, Richmond city, and Colonial Heights city). Utilize topology to align polygon edges.
