Combining ACS Data with Crime Data

In order to understand how crime or criminal elements are embedded within different communities, it may be useful to combine neighborhood crime data with ACS demographic and housing data. There are hotspots in most cities that could be objectively analyzed to reveal patterns which may be disrupted by governmental policy. That is, if the data clearly points to consistent reliable trends.

Census Geography

Get Lat/Long of Census Tracts

In order to draw a tract polygon, I need a list of lat/longs that define each tract. (For example, a tract that is exactly a square would have four lat/long points that define it.)

Error in Census 2010 API document ?

Hi All, I believe that the Census 2010 API documentation (http://api.census.gov/data/2010/sf1/variables.html) has an error for the table: P12A. Sex By Age (White Alone). It appears that both P012A026 and P012A049 are attributed as Female: !! 85 years and over. I believe that P012A026 should be 'Female' (as in the total of all females.

Voter registration / political party data?

Is there any data available for political party affiliation within census data? I know it was not part of the 2010 Census Form or the American Community Survey, but I am definitely interested in mining that information if it is available somewhere else in the census database.

Bizplanup – Community Profile Tool for Businesses

The tool would generate a printable report around a custom geography, with the option to download the data behind the profile report.
