Economic Census

Finding Economic Data By Geography

The economic programs at Census typically produce data for the following six levels of geography: National, States, Metro Areas, Counties, Places, and ZIP Codes. Some of the programs also produce data additional geographies such as Regions, Divisions, and Commodity Flow Survey Metro Areas. To learn more about each level of geography, please visit the Geography Help Center.

Using the tables below, you will be able to see which of the six main geographic levels are available for each program. In the first table, you will see all economic programs that release data in American FactFinder (AFF). In the second table, you will see all economic programs that release data via their website.
