SOPHISTICATED DATA COMPILATION BASED ON RELIABLE SOURCES

The census demographic estimates and forecasts in the HTL website are based upon data produced by Esri Demographics, which use the latest US Census Bureau annual American Community Survey (ACS) as a starting point. They then combine additional data from multiple sources including residential postal delivery counts from the USPS, a time series of county-to-county migration patterns from the IRS, building permits, housing starts and local data sources that tested well against Census 2010. For more detailed information on the data collection methodology, see Gazetteer Resources & Data Sources.
