Missouri Census Data Center

Circular Area Profiles (CAPS)

This is "classic CAPS" which uses data from the 2000 census long form. There are two newer versions of this application (using more current data) :

  • 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.
