American Community Survey [Return to top of page]

acs/ American Community Survey General Info

The American Community Survey has now replaced long-form (sample based) decennial census data (there was no long form as part of the 2010 census, and so there will be no Summary File 3 arriving in 2012). This generic directory is for holding materials (such as the very important Readme page) that are about the ACS in general. Date for specific years ("vintages") are stored in the acs20YY directories (below) or in the acspums directory ("filetype").

acs2015/ American Community Survey Data, 2015 vintage

Once again we have the single-year 2015 and five-year 2011-2015 data. Looks almost identical to what we did with the vintage 2014 and other recent vintages.

acs2014/ American Community Survey Data, 2014 vintage

Once again we have the single-year 2014 data. NO three-year 2011-2013 data this year (product was canceled by the Bureau). Five-year 2010-2014 data also available. For the first time we now have non-overlapping 5-year data (this and the 2005-2009 data in acs2005).

acs2013/ American Community Survey Data, 2013 vintage

The usual single-year 2013 data, three-year 2011-2013 data and five-year 2009-2013 data.

acs2012/ American Community Survey Data, 2012 vintage

The usual: single-year 2012 data, three-year 2010-2012 data and five-year 2008-2012 data. These data were released over the period from September to December, 2013.

acs2011/ American Community Survey Data, 2011 vintage

Once again we have the single-year 2011 data, three-year 2009-2011 data and five-year 2007-2011 data. New this year is data at the block group level for the entire U.S. and a complete set of 5-year base tables in the btabs5yr subdirectory. Access to these data (the 5yr us data sets, at least) has been made easier with the new ACS Profile extract app (see the Quick Links box).

acs2010/ American Community Survey Data, 2010 vintage

This was the first year the Census Bureau took advantage of the results of the 2010 census counts in order to refine their weighting algorithm, hopefully improving the estimates. The format in which we got the data from the Census Bureau was different from previous years and has required us to do considerable recoding on our (us)mcdcprofiles data sets. Once again we have single-year 2010 data, three-year 2008-2010 data and five-year 2006-2010 data.

acs2009/ American Community Survey Data, 2009 vintage

This was the first ACS collection to include 5-year period estimates with data for all geographic units regardless of population size.

acs2008/ American Community Survey Data, 2008 vintage

These data were released in September and October of 2009. There are both single year summary data for 2008 and 3-year period estimates data based on 2006-2008 stored here. The single-year data are limited to geographic entities of 65,000 or more population, while the 3-year period estimates lower the threshold to around 19,000. Our collection includes data for the entire U.S. and includes complete detailed (base) tables as well as profile datasets that are similar to the data found in the Census Bureau's profile reports accessible via American FactFinder. There is no 5-year data as part of this collection - that does not begin until next year, with filetype acs2009.

acs2007/ American Community Survey Data, 2007 vintage

These data were released in September thru December of 2008. There are both single year summary data for 2007 and 3-year period estimates data based on 2005-2007 stored here. The single-year data are limited to geographic entities of 65,000 or more population, while the 3-year period estimates lower the threshold to around 19,000. Our collection includes data for the entire U.S. and includes complete detailed (base) tables as well as profile datasets that are similar to the data found in the Census Bureau's profile reports accessible via American FactFinder.

acs2006/ American Community Survey Data, 2006 vintage

These data are the tabulated results of the surveys for the 2006 calendar year, released by the Census Bureau in 2007. Unlike the 2005 tabulations, these include persons in group quarters as part of the universe. These data are still limited to single-year estimates for geographic entities of 65,000 or more population. Our collection includes data for the entire U.S. and includes complete detailed (base) tables as well as profile datasets that are similar to the data found in the Census Bureau's profile reports accessible via American FactFinder.

acs2005/ American Community Survey Data, 2005 vintage

Data tables from the ACS for the calendar year 2005 are summarized here. These are the first substantial set of data tables ever to appear based on the ACS. Summaries are for geographic areas of at least 65,000 population. The group quarters segment of the population was not covered in the 2005 survey so all figures here summarize just the household population. There are no moving averages here, just tables based on a single year of surveys. These data were released in "waves" during the summer and fall of 2006. The general structure of these data is not consistent with the way we processed data for later years.

acspums/ Public Use Microsample Data from the ACS (all available years)

This is American Community Survey's 1% Public Use MicroSample data. These data are only of direct interest to researchers with access to and skill using a statistical software package. We have complete national collections broken down by state for 2005 thru (at least) 2010.

See also the kni filetype listed in the compendia section of this directory.

Decennial Census 2010 [Return to top of page]

See the Census Bureau's 2010 Census Data Products At a Glance for an overview of data products based on the 2010 census, with release dates and, on occasion, technical documentation.

Unless otherwise noted, all of these data collections are nationwide.

sf12010x/ Summary File 1 Standard Extract

These data sets access the detailed table data stored in the sf12010 collection and create much smaller extract data sets. Standard practice and naming conventions for all our decennial summary (tape) filetypes. The sf1profile web application displays the data from these data sets. Check out the SF1 Extract Assistant web application to make extractions easier -- see the link in the SeeAlso.html file in this (sf12010x) data directory.

sf12010/ Summary File 1, Complete Tables

This is the primary data product based on the 2010 decennial census. There was only a short form questionnaire in 2010 with just seven questions, so the tables here deal with just basic demographics (age, sex, race, hispanic origin, household types, etc.) This data directory contains the full tables. See sf12010x, above, for the standard extracts based on these complete tables.
pl942010/ Redistricting Data from the 2010 census.
Also referred to as "PL-94" or "Public Law 94-171" files. The purpose of these data is primarily for states to redraw their congressional and state legislative district boundaries using the result of the 2010 census. We have a complete collection of 51 state summary files and some national files based on selecting, concatenating and sometimes aggregating the data from the state datasets.

sf22010/ Summary File 2

"SF2" is somewhat similar to SF1 in terms of the kind of basic demographic data provided, and for the geographic areas for which the data are available. What makes these data special is the addition of a "characteristic iteration" dimension. Whenever any of over 300 population subgroups (racial/Hispanic origin groups, Indain tribes, detailed nationality groups, etc.) in an area meets a 100-person threshold requirement you get a separate set of summary tables for the geographic area/sub-group. These data are being released on a "flow" basis starting in mid-December 2011. We have downloaded and converted the data for Nevada thus far, mostly to test our conversion software. Our plans are to only process data for Missouri, Illinois and Kansas and perhaps later a national file with data at the nation, state and county levels only. (Note: these data represent a work on progress as of December, 2011. Use with caution.)

New filetype. pums2010/ Public Use MicroSample Data

Released late (in December of 2014) these data allow researchers to access individual census questionnaire data (rather than the summary data we see on all of the other data files based on the census). A 10% sample. With limited data, however, because of the very limited subject matter covered on the 2010 short form.

dpro2010/ Demographic Profile Data from the 2010 census.

These data files were released in May of 2011 to provide users with early access to some of the more frequently-used data items extracted from the much more detailed Summary File 1 collection which was going to be released later in the summer. Geographic detail on these data sets is limited to governmental units.

Decennial Census 2000 [Return to top of page]

sf32000x/ Standard Extract based on Summary File 3, 2000 decennial census.

This has been our most popular (frequently accessed) filetype since it was created in 2002, In these data files we have compressed the 16,000+ cells of tabular data on a full Summary File 3 (filetype sf32000) summary record down to just over 200 key items (and another 200 or so corresponding percentages). These files are the basis for our hugely popular dp3_2k profile reports.
This file type closely resembles (and is understandably sometimes confused with) the sf3prof filetype (below), which is the Census Bureau's standard extract from the same basic data source. But there are important differences; perhaps the most critical being that these data are available for a much wider array of geographic entities, down to the block group, than are the sf3prof data, available (on this site) only for governmental units. Be sure to look at the Variables.pdf file which provides an excellent overview of the data items contained in these datasets.
sf32000/ Summary File 3 - Complete Data Tables (Long Form/Sample Data)
Summary File 3 (2000 decennial census) is probably the most widely used of all the summary data files ever produced by the Census Bureau. "SF3" contains detailed tables based on responses to the long form questionnaire. Here is where you can find data on topics such as income, poverty, housing value, occupation, education, etc. These data are available for a wide array of geographic units. The MCDC has data down to the tract and block group levels for at least Missouri, Illinois, Kansas Minnesota, Michigan and Delaware (state files.) We also have the final National file with data for every state, county, ZCTA, place, UA, MSA, etc. in the U.S. Be sure to read the Readme file in this directory for a good overview.

We have more of these data at the census tract and block group levels for the entire country which are stored on an offline server (not a direct part of this archive). If you are in need of such data the MCDC can temporarily move data sets into the archive. Space limitations prevent us from keeping it all on this server.

sf12000x/ Standard extract from the full 2000 Summary File 1 data sets
Basic demographic counts based on the short-form census questionnaire. One of the few places where you can find census block level data. For an overview, see the Readme.html file.
sf12000/ Summary File 1, Complete Data Tables (Short Form/Complete Count Data)
The first detailed set of tables from the 2000 U.S. Census, derived from responses to the short form questionnaire. Does not have data based on long-form questions regarding items such as income, housing value, occupation, etc. Those items are on sf32000, which was released in the summer of 2002. For an overview of SF1, review Readme.html.   
sf3prof/ Census Bureau Demographic Profile data

If you are familiar with the Census Bureau's widely popular DP1 to DP4 demographic profile report products, here you will find all the data that goes into them. We have one file per state/profile and a national collection with higher level summaries. You get to choose between the variable names that came with the data from the Census Bureau or MCDC-assigned mnemonic names (e.g. v23 is the Bureau name, Over65 is the MCDC mnemonic name). Percent variables as used in the DP reports (but not included in the data files distributed) have been added to the datasets. This is a very well-documented and value-added collection. Geographic entities summarized are mostly governmental units: states, counties, places, MCDs, metro areas, 106th congressional districts and American Indian reservations. We have a complete collection of data for all states and US summaries.

sf1prof/ Census Bureau Demographic Profile: short form-only data

Same idea as the sf3prof collection (above), but the data used in these files are based on data collected on the short form. So it is basic demographics: age, sex, race and ethnicity, as well as household composition and some basic housing data (occupancy rates and tenure, for example.) This is the 2000 census equivalent of the dpro2010 collection based on the 2010 census.

pums2000/ Public Use MicroSample files
These files are the favorites of researchers who have access to a good statistical software package and know how to use it. With PUMS, you can use a tool such as the SAS's Proc Tabulate to build tables almost any way you like it from these datasets, which contain actual microdata (census returns from individual persons and households). Geographic detail is limited (to special geographic areas called PUMAs. The Census Bureau releases these files in two product types, a 1% sample file and a 5% sample. The MCDC collection includes a complete collection of 5% sample files for all states and a smaller collection of the 1% sample files (Missouri, Illinois and Kansas). SAS users at universities may contact the MCDC regarding being obtaining access to this collection directly on the University of Missouri site using a special server.
pl942000/ Public Law 94-171 ("Redistricting") file
This was the first data published based on the 2000 decennial census. Contains basic pop counts by race/Hispanic and voting age for a wide variety of geographic levels (including VTDs - Voting Tabulation Districts), down to census block. The MCDC has a complete national collection of these data. For an overview see the Readme file.
ctpp2000/ Census of Transportation Planning Package
These files represent a special tabulation of the 2000 Census long-form data for use in transportation planning applications. As such, the tables have relevance to commuting information such as when people leave home for work, how they travel to work, how long it takes to get there, etc. There is also some custom geography found on thees files such as TAZ's (Transportation Analysis Zones) and MPOs. There are 3 parts to this collection: Part 1 provides table summaries based on where people resided; Part 2 is based on where people worked; and Part 3 deals with dual geography, giving characteristics of commuters for specified origin-destination geographic combinations. These data were prepared by the Census Bureau using specifications from the US Dept of Transportation, who are the distributors of the data and who are responsible for its content. We have downloaded and converted files for Missouri, Illinois and Kansas only.
ctppx/ Census of Transportation Planning Package 2000 standard extract
These extracts are derived from the datasets in the ctpp2000 complete-tables collection.
cqr2000/ Count Question Resolution data
"CQR" (Count Question Resolution) was the Census Bureau's program to identify errors in the total population and housing unit counts in the 2k census. This directory has datasets that capture those adjustments at both the census block level (one dataset and csv file per state) and at the governmental unit (state, county, place, mcd) levels.
daytmpop/ Daytime population
This special tabulation can be used to estimate the number of people who may be in an area on a typical work day, i.e. it tabulates based on place of work instead of place of residence as with almost all other census tabulations.
mig2000/ Migration Patterns, 1995-2000
Datasets in this directory are related to migration in the U.S. between 1995 and 2000 as derived from the 2000 decennial census long form (sample) data. The Census Bureau released a number of different summary files in this category, but our collection contains only the basic counts of movers (data disclosure restrictions rendered many of the other tabulations almost useless). This is a national collection.
eeo2000/ Equal Employment Opportunity special tabulation
This loosely affiliated collection of tables (datasets) is named for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, 1 of 4 federal agencies that commissioned this special tabulation product. Here you will find detailed counts of persons by occupation categories by age, sex, race/ethnicity, education level, income level and even, sometimes, by industry. Hard to describe since it is a very complicated collection of 24 tables, each with its own geographic, demographic and occupational dimensions. We tried very hard to make this collection simple to access, but the task proved to be impossible.
workflow/ County to County Work Flows
Tells you where people who lived in one county worked in that or other counties. This special tabulation file is based on sample (long form) data from the 2K census. It gives you the count of persons who live in County R and work in County W for all counties in the country. The MCDC has created some custom reports based on these files, and has created a web application that accesses the data for any U.S. state.
sf42000/ Summary File 4
See the Census Bureau's Abstract for a description of this data collection. The key feature of "SF4" is the ability to get detailed tables for a long list of race/ancestry groups. However, new threshold limitations (explained in the Abstract) make using it for analytical purposes very problematic. The large number of tables combined with the large number of characteristic iterations makes these files huge.
Because of the enormous size and complexity of this collection, we strongly recommend that users new to the collection begin by accessing the SF4 data using the American FactFinder application, the Data Sets option. It tends to be a lot easier than accessing via Dexter.
sf22000/ Summary File 2
Summary File 2, 2000 decennial census. Important for those who are interested in detailed complete count data for special race/hispanic/Indian tribe population groups. Less important than in previous censuses because so much of the data here was already released as part of SF1. The special subgroups ("characteristic iterations") are represented on separate observations, identified by the ID variable CharIter. See our SAS format code showing the values of these codes. See the Census Bureau's SF2 page for more information, including access to the data via American Fact Finder.
Data for the population subgroups is only present for a geographic area if it meets the threshold criteria of at least 100 people in that category.   
hudcdbg/ Community Development Block Grant data
These data are derived from 2000 Census data by the U.S. Dept of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The datasets contain information regarding low and moderate income housing down to very small (block group) geographic areas. These numbers are used by local developers and planners wanting to qualify for special grant funding in neighborhoods. See the HUD web site where we went to download these data, and where you can download it in the form of Excel spreadsheets for any state in the country. Our collection is limited to Missouri, Illinois and Kansas.

Decennial Census 1990 [Return to top of page]

stf903x2/ 1990 Summary Tape File 3: standard extract (revised version)

Same basic idea as stf903x (see below), but this filetype was created to be comparable to the SF3-based extract data for 2000 (filetype sf32000x). Data from these sets are used in the MCDC's very popular dp3_2kt demographic trend reports.
stf903/ 1990 Summary Tape File 3
Each dataset here contains over 3300 cells of pre-tabulated data based on the 1990 census long-form questionnaires. Each observation contains data for a single geographic area. We have complete "A" files for Missouri, Illinois and Kansas plus a few other states; we also have the complete "C" file (national) with summaries for the country, states, counties and larger cities. And, we have the "B" file - ZIP level summaries. This filetype has been made accessible at the table level from Dexter. As with any of the census summary file filetypes, you really need to have access to the technical documentation -- available in the stf903/Docs subdirectory of this archive -- before attempting to use these data. The stf903x and stf903x2 filetypes are derived from these files and are appropriate for quick overviews or access to frequently-used variables. This data collection was substantially restructured in early 2005.
stf903x/ 1990 Summary Tape File 3: standard extract (original version)
These data were used for our Basic Tables web reports. These datasets are faster and friendlier to access than the much larger stf903 sets from which they are derived. See also the stf903x2 alternative filetype, described above.
stf904/ Summary Tape File 4
These are very large 1990 census summary files, featuring large multi-dimensional tables and separate files that summarize subpopulations based on race and/or hispanic origin. We have File A and File B for Missouri only and all of File C (the national file). We have B Table files for total pop, the 5 basic race groups (White, Black, American Indian+, Asian & PI, Other), the 5 basic groups/non-hispanic and Hispanic (12 "chariters" - characteristic iterations). We have added labels to the variables in these datasets (in December, 2005) and made them accessible at the table level via Dexter. The complete technical documentation is accessible from the Docs subdirectory.
stf901x2/ 1990 Summary Tape File 1: standard extract (revised version)
Specifically designed to be used as the 1990 equivalent of the data in filetype sf12000x. Many sets in this directory have been re-tabulated to 2000 census geography to allow for direct trend reports using comparable geography.
stf901/ 1990 Summary Tape File 1
This STF is the 100-percent file on population and housing. No social or economic indicators are reported on this file.
stf901x/ 1990 Summary Tape File 1: standard extract
The original version we used back in the 90's. After the 2k census came out we devised a slightly modified filetype, stf901x2, which we now use because it is more compatible with 2000 extracts.

stf902 Summary Tape File 2/

1990 Summary Tape File 2. We don't have a whole of data here. STF2 is like STF1, only more detailed.

stf420/ Place of Work Destinations File
Got its name because of Table 20 on Summary Tape File 4 contained these data. The comparable filetype in 2000 is Workflow.
pums90/ Public Use Microdata Sample, 1990
We have 5% files for Mo, Il & Ar and the 1% files for the entire U.S.
stf9s5/ 1990 Special Tabulation File 5
Commuting Patterns by county
eeo90/ Equal Employment Opportunity file
1990 version was more useful than its 2000 counterpart, since they reported more data.
stp154/ Special Tabulation Product 154
Commuting patterns by Place-tract ("Daytime population" file)
stp28/ Special Tab Product 28
County to County Migration 1985-1990. One of our "specialties".
pl9490/ 1990 Public Law 94 (redistricting) file.
A few variables about lots of geographic areas, down to census block.
pl9490tx/ Special extracts from pl9490.
Public Law 94-171 (Redistricting data) from 1990 Census - special extracts used (along with data from the pl942000 directory) in creating PL94 Basic Trend reports.

cqr90mo/ Census Quality Review data.

Census Quality Review data: documents geographic errors and fixes in 1990 census geography. We have just the single txt file for state of Missouri.

Decennial Census 1980 [Return to top of page]  

stf803/ 1980 Summary Tape File 3

We have a complete national collection with "A" files for every state as well as a national ZIP code file and the "C" file with higher level geographies for the entire U.S. These contain very detailed tables based on the 1980 long form.

stf803x2/ 1980 Summary Tape File 3 standard extract, revised.

Same idea as the stf803x standard extract but this is by far the better collection. Content was chosen to be as compatible as possible with similar extracts from the 1990 and 2000 extracts. Complete national collection.

stf803x/ 1980 Summary Tape File 3 standard extract.

(Needs work - strongly suggest using stf803x2 instead).

stf801/ Summary Tape File 1

Detailed tables based on the 1980 short form.

stf801x/ Extracts derived from STF 1 tables

1980 Summary Tape File 1 standard extracts.

marf2/ Master Area Reference File 2, 1980

These files provide a geographic inventory for the 1980 census. Each record/observation describes the geographic codes associated with a 1980 geographic summary area, together with some basic population and housing counts, and pci (Per Capita Income - 1979). For some geographic levels there are internal point latitude-longitude coordinates and/or land areas.
The data are similar to the geographic headers portion of the 1980 Summary Tape File 1 files. Geographic units summarized are states, counties, MCDs (county subdivisions), places (cities), census tracts (BNA's), block groups and enumeration districts. Be sure to check out the extensive Readme.html file.  

pums80/ Public Use MicroSample data

Microdata data files with long-form census response data from that census. Each record/observation describes either a person or a household. A data dictionary file is included and the Tools library should be very useful for anyone wanting to access these data using SAS. From a statistically much simpler era - the implied weight on every record/observation is 20 because it's a 5% sample.  

Population Estimates [Return to top of page]

popests/ Population estimates.

More recent population estimates and projections from many different sources, for many different geographic areas and units. More for Missouri than for elsewhere, but some good state, metro area and county level data for the entire U.S.. Some datasets with historical trends, some with components of change, some with demographic detail. These are all post-2000 estimates (with one key exception) along with a small number of projections (i.e. esitmates of future populations). (Note: for the latest Missouri county level projections, see the moprojs filetype, just below.)
In late March, 2014 we added the estimates with components of change data for 2013 (uscom and mocom data sets).

nchsbri/ NCHS special tab "bridged race" estimates

This popests/nchsbri subdirectory (not technically a filetype, but rather an important sub-filetype) contains special estimates commissioned by the NCHS (National Center for Health Statistics) using "bridged" race categories, i.e. using race standards established by OMB in 1977 rather than the current ones established in 1997. The complete national collection has 4 datasets per state, 2 based on 1990 intercensal estimates and 2 based on post-2000 estimates. State and county level numbers with detail by single years of age, race (only 4 "bridged" values), sex and hispanic origin. Important raw data resource for demographer types. These data are used in the MCDC's Population Estimates by Age dynamic web application. Updated each summer with estimates through 7-1 of the previous year. These data get refreshed (and overwritten) annually, between June and September. (Used to be closer to September, but in 2014 we got the data at the end of June for 2013).

moprojs/ Missouri population projections

Missouri projected pops at the state and county level out to the year 2030. Done in 2008 by the state demographer in the Office of Administration in Jefferson City. These projections were done using the latest census results and estimates then available. These numbers represent the "preferred" series.

popests2/ Older estimates of historic interest

More estimates, but these are older and of interest mostly for for historical or trend analyses. Most were released by the Census Bureau during the 90's and contain data estimated as of some year or years within that decade.
saipe/ Small Area Income & Poverty Estimates
See the Economic Indicators section. (Does include some population estimates as well, which is why we put this here.) We also store the "SAHIE" data here - the estimates of health insurance coverage.

Economic Indicators [Return to top of page]

beareis/ Bureau of Economic Analysis Regional Economic Information System (REIS) data

Time series data on employment, income, farm income, transfer payments and an overall economic profile for all states and counties in the U.S. Updated (with the files written over) each year (typically in the spring). There is usually a 2-year lag in getting these data out. In September, 2012 we completely replaced the data collection with new data sets rebenchmarked and with new data for 1969 thru 2010 .

sahie/ Small area health insurance coverage data.

We keep these data in the saipe directory (see below).


These are small area (county and school district level) income and poverty estimates from the HHES group at the Census Bureau. These are inter-censal estimates generated using complex statistical methodologies. The latest estimates tend to be about 2 or 3 years old. Data are for usually for the entire U.S. We also store the sahie data here: county level estimates related to uninsured persons by age, race, sex and poverty status.


County Business Patterns. Counts of businesses, total and by industry, with establishments by size. Also has employment and payroll data. Data varies by geographic level, which includes nation, state, county, metro area (CBSA) and ZIP code. Annual data for theses levels (except ZIP code) available for the entire U.S. going back to 1999, with some earlier data for selected years back to 1990. New data are added to this collection each year. In April of 2015 the data for 2013 were added.


IRS tax return data. These data sets provide summaries of personal income tax returns by year. Data include items such as number of total returns, total gross income reported, total taxes paid, total deductions of various types, etc. The data are tabulated at the county and ZIP code levels, along with state aggregates. Added to archive Feb., 2014.
In July, 2014 the IRS released the data for tax year 2012. There were signficant changes to the data, especially at the ZIP level.

Banking Deposits data for Missouri. Data are for individual branches with names, addresses and estimated deposit info from the FDIC. The data have also been aggregated to Missouri counties and the state. Data are available for 1999 thru (at least) 2015.


These are (un)employment statistics from the Bureau of Labor Statistics -- their "la" (local area) series data. We have significantly restructured the data and have added badly needed FIPS state and county codes to make the data mergeable with other statistics. Monthly and annual average employment, unemployment and unemployment rate data back to 1990 for all US (+PR) states and counties. In 2015 we added a new collection of data sets containing annual average data for selected years going back to 1990. (These are the usstateavgs and uscountyavgs data sets.)
Employment and wage data for Missouri. Based on ES-202 files for the state. County level summaries for various years, Missouri only. These data are for the decade of the 90s and have not been updated in over 10 years. Of historic interest only.
Taxable sales for Missouri counties by SIC by quarter, starting with year 2000. Data is from the Missouri Dept of Revenue. Lots of suppression here when you look for detailed SIC info, but the data for total sales without SIC detail is there. One dataset per year at the county/SIC level, and then a single summary set with just total sales by county by year (with state totals as well). Updated in June 2013 with complete 2012 data.
State and local government finance data based on the annual survey conducted by the Census Bureau. For each state and the nation you get information regarding tax revenue sources and expenditures. The data are also reported by government level: state, local, and state+local. This filetype was added to the archive on an experimental basis in March, 2014. We currently just have data for the years 2006 and 2011.

Geography/GIS [Return to top of page]  

georef/ Geographic Reference Files

Extensive collection of geographic reference data. A mixture of national and Missouri-specific files.

corrlst/ - geographic "correlation lists" / equivalency files

These are our geographic "correlation list" (aka "equivalency file") datasets. They deal with how various geographic layers correspond to each other. For example, how ZIP codes correlate with Congressional Districts. Included (as a subdirectory) is the MABLE database used in the MABLE/Geocorr web application.  Many of these datasets (and many more like them) can be generated using the MABLE/Geocorr dynamic web application. Where many of these datasets may only be for Missouri and neighboring states, MABLE/Geocorr works for the entire country.

blkrel10/ Census 2000 Tabulation Block / 2010 Census Tab Block relationship files.

These files show the relationship between the census blocks for these two decades. We enhance the files by combining them with data from our 2000 block-based mable07 data (see below), and by doing various value-added aggregations to generation other equivalency data sets. It includes a report directory and data sets that depict tract-to-tract equivalencies across the decade.

blkrel/ Census 1990 Tabulation Block / 2000 Census Tab Block relationship files.

These files show the relationship between the census blocks for these two decades. Similar to the blkrel10 filetype.

New filetype.

HUD/USPS ZIP to Tract and Tract to ZIP Crosswalk Files

These files (for various points in time, currently just 1st quarter 2016 but many more available if needed) allow linking current ZIP codes (including non-residential) and 2010 census tracts.

mable14/ Master Area Block Level Equivalency File, 2012

This is the database constructed for use in the Geocorr14 web application. It is a distillation of the information contained in the geographic headers files from Summary File 1, 2010 census. augmented with data from more recent TIGER line files and some other miscellaneous sources.
As usual, the Missouri datasets have some extra geocodes not available for the rest of the country.
Most users will want to access these data using the geocorr14 web application at http://mcdc.missouri.edu/websas/geocorr14.html.

mable12/ Master Area Block Level Equivalency File, 2012

This is the database constructed for use in the Geocorr12 web application. It is a distillation of the information contained in the geographic headers files from Summary File 1, 2010 census. augmented with data from more recent TIGER line files and some other miscellaneous sources. For the first time in the MABLE database series we have included geocodes from an earlier decade: you'll find numerous 2000 vintage geocodes, such as 2000 census tracts, county subdivisions and places, to go with their 2010 counterparts,
As usual, the Missouri datasets have some extra geocodes not available for the rest of the country.
Most users will want to access these data using the new (July, 2012) geocorr12 web application at http://mcdc.missouri.edu/websas/geocorr12.html.

mable09/ Master Area Block Level Equivalency File, rev. 2009/2010

This is the database constructed in 2010 for use in the Mable/Geocorr2k web application. It is a distillation of the information contained in the geographic headers files from Summary File 1, 2000 census. with some augmentations based on more recent TIGER line files and various other geographic sources such as CBSA codes for counties. The Missouri datasets have some extra codes not available for the rest of the country. Most users will want to access these data using the web application at http://mcdc.missouri.edu/websas/geocorr2k.html.

mable07/ Master Area Block Level Equivalency File, rev. 2007

This is the database constructed for use in the Mable/Geocorr2k web application (2007-2009 then superceded by mable09). It is a distillation of the information contained in the geographic headers files from Summary File 1, 2000 census. with some augmentations based on more recent TIGER line files and various other geographic sources such as CBSA codes for counties. The Missouri datasets have some extra codes not available for the rest of the country.

mable2k/ Master Area Block Level Equivalency File

This is the original 2000-geography MABLE database used in the MABLE/Geocorr2k web application. We have since updated the datasets in mable09, but this directory contains the Tools directory where we have kept all the code used to generate the original and the updated datasets throughout the decade 2000-2009.

mable98/ Master Area Block Level Equivalency File, rev. 1998

Similar to the mable2k/mable07 data collections, but this has older geographic codes. You can access these using the original 1990 version of MABLE/Geocorr at http://mcdc.missouri.edu/websas/geocorr90.shtml.
gazteer/ Census Bureau Gazetteers
These data sets provide basic codes, names (f applicable) and geographic measures (internal point coordinates and various land/water area measurements) for a wide array of geographic types and time periods.

gnis/ U.S.G.S. Geographic Names Information System

Somewhat experimental venture to download and convert these data. They are current as of April 2009. We may or may not maintain these as current depending upon user interest and/or our need to convert to the USGS geographic coding scheme.

gics90/ 1990 Geographic Identification Code Scheme (Census)

Nice reference sets for basic geographic entities as defined for the 1990 decennial census.

Compendia [Return to top of page]

kni/ Key Neighborhood Indicators

Experimental (as of Auguest, 2016) filetype that focuses on data mostly from the ACS (latest 5-year period estimates) that "define" or distnguish a neighborhood. The geography is census tracts. Hoping to develop a web application that will facilitate easy access from a web front end that relies heavily on maps.

mosenior/ Missouri Senior Report

The data used to support the publication and web site of the same name. Contains county level ranking of the state's elderly population (defined usually as aged 65+). OSEDA (the Office of Social and Economic Data Analaysis at the University of Missouri Columbia, an MCDC core agency) was reponsible for the data and web site development on this project. You can access these data in the mosenior data directory. (See links under Data and Maps/Download Data Files on the MO Sr Report web site).

cntypage/ The Missouri County Summary of Social and Economic Indicators

This collection was originally developed by OSEDA in collaboration with University of Missouri Extension personnel originally in the fall of 2005. It includes key indicators used by Extension personnel, including key data from the 2000 & 2010 decennial censuses, recent American Community Survey data, the latest population estimates, current housing unit estimate, key employment and personal income categories from BEA, and a host of other items. The key datasets get refreshed at least once a year as new time series data become available. Geographic summary units are the state, its counties and the UM Extension regions.
See the Missouri County Summary of Social and Economic Indicators web site for access to these data as formatted reports.

indctrs/ Missouri county key indicators database.

(Of historic interest only.) An assortment of datasets that have been created mostly by extraction of key data items from other sets in this archive. Emphasis is on data for Missouri (the state, its counties and various regions), and most have data for at least two points in time. This collection of data was the basis of all reports and analyses published by OSEDA on their web site from 2002 to 2007. There have been no data added to this collection since April, 2007.

kidscnt/ Kids Count
Kids Count is a national program sponsored by the Annie E. Casey foundation. The data for Missouri (all we have in the archive) comes from a myriad of sources, mostly within state government. They are all collected here and are used as the source of the tables / charts / reports / maps etc that can be accessed at the Missouri Kids Count Data Book Online web site. The mocomaster[yyyy] data sets (especially the most recent one) are the data sets to focus on initially.
desex/ DESE demographic data extract
Demographic indicators extracted from the 1990 & 2000 censuses and other public sources created specifically for the Missouri Dept of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). These data are the basis for the DESE Socio-Economic Indicator Resource web application. Summaries at various geographic levels, most of them within School District.
modotx/ MoDOT demographic data extract
Of historic interest only. The MoDOT SEIR extract data were created for the Mo. Dept of Transportation for use in their Socio-Economic Indicator Resource web-based system (developed for MoDOT by OSEDA circa 2002) Geography is geared toward MoDOT applications but includes Regional Planning Commisions, counties and places. Data are heavily 2000 census (including CTPP) based.

Other (Not Elsewhere Classified) [Return to top of page]


County level migration data based on IRS tax returns. We have data for the entire U.S. based on tax years as early as 1999/2000 and as recent as 2010/2011. (Check to see if we now have something later).


Basically this is a catch-all for data sets that we do not expect to keep in the archive permanently. Oftentimes we create such data sets for specific users so they can access the data via Dexter and convert to whatever format(s) they prefer.


Census of Agriculture, 2012. Summary Table 1 data only. Very similar to what we did with the 2007 data.


Census of Agriculture, 2007. Summary table 1 data only. We might do more later, if user demand indicates a need. Most users will want to go to the Ag Census web site at www.agcensus.usda.gov/.

movoters/ Missouri Registered Voters

All that we have here for public access is a series of registered voter counts by county datasets. These are based on data obtained from Missouri Secretary of State's office, aggregated by the MSCDC. There are no data on individual voters that are publicly accessible in this directory.

Note:If you know what filetype you want you can explore the data by accessing the main data directory (sorted alphabetically by filetype) at:
