Related "Gopher" Application

(Actually, a former gopher application - it was converted in 1997.) An application that generates very similar reports has been running since 1993. It is still available but it has no small area profiles outside of Missouri. And it produces text-format only. This application also produces some related "Basic Trends" reports with comparable data for 1980. Missouri data or U.S. Data - Limited (STF3C) geography.
