The block group geodatabases contain all of the data available at the block group level according to the 2008-2012 American Community Survey 5-year estimates technical documentation [PDF] with the exception of the tables ending in A-I (e.g. includes B01001 - Sex by Age but not table B01001A - Sex by Age White Alone). The other geodatabases contain all of the data available for sub-state geographies with the exception of the tables ending in A-I.

In each geodatabase is a metadata file with a short name and a full description of each cell. The attribute table for each geodatabase contains the short names for each data element. Additional metadata for the geography can be found in the 2012 TIGER/Line Shapefiles technical documentation [PDF] and the 2008-2012 American Community Survey 5-year estimates technical documentation [PDF].

These geodatabases were created using ArcGIS 10.1.

2007 - 2011 Data Profiles

These geodatabases join the geography from the TIGER/Line Shapefiles to the 2007-2011 American Community Survey 5-year estimates Data Profiles:

  • DP02 - Selected Social Characteristics in the United States
  • DP02PR - Selected Social Characteristics in Puerto Rico
  • DP03 - Selected Economic Characteristics

Download the Geodatabases:

  • County (ZIP file)
  • Metropolitan and Micropolitan Statistical Areas (ZIP file)
  • Census Tracts (ZIP files)

Data are available for the United States and Puerto Rico.

These geodatabases were created using the Data Profiles from American FactFinder (see sample here). These data profiles generally have four entries for each variable the estimate, the margin of error for the estimate, the percent of the total universe, and margin of error for the percent. On the total lines, instead of showing a percent and percent margin of error, the estimate is repeated in the percent column and there is no percent margin of error.

These files lack metadata.  Metadata for the geography can be found in the 2011 TIGER/Line Shapefiles.  There is a table in the geodatabase with metadata for the Demographic Profiles including the short name and full description. The attribute table for each shapefile contains the short names for each data element.

2010 Census

Demographic Profile 1 — Shapefile Format

These national level shapefiles join the geometry and selected attributes from the 2010 Census TIGER/Line Shapefiles and the 2010 Census Summary File 1 Demographic Profile (DP1) for the United States and Puerto Rico. They contain data items such as total population, total housing units, median age, population 16 years and over, population 65 years and over, race, relationship, average household size, and many others. All files are zipped.

These files lack metadata.  Metadata for the shapefiles can be found in the 2010 Census TIGER/Line Shapefiles.  There is an MS Excel file in each zip file that relates the short data table name of the demographic profile data element to its full name. For example, "DP0010001" is the short name for the data table containing total population. The attribute table for each shapefile contains the short names for each data element.
