Circular Area Profiles (CAPS)

There are now two newer versions (using more current data) of this application:

  • caps10c that uses 2010 census data extracted from SF1. And...

  • caps10acs that uses the latest 5-year period estimates from the American Community Survey.

This application will aggregate 2000 Census data to approximate circular areas as specified by the user using a point location and 1 or more radius values. Data used are from Summary File 3, the standard MCDC extract. See the notes page for details.
