Demographic Estimates and Projections are ideally suited for business users and researchers who need to know where to market, where to expand, and how to allocate resources. GeoLytics’ current year estimates and 5-year projections provide researchers with the necessary data to identify changes occurring in communities in the years since the 2010 Census and forecast the demographic trends that are likely to occur in the future.
With Estimates Professional you get all of the basic current year estimates and 5-year projection data as well as 100s of additional variables. These include sex by age by race, educational attainment, consumer expenditures and more.
Estimates Premium includes all of the basic and Professional variables and also includes poverty, employment, family income, median home values and median rents. The geographic selections are also expanded to include cities, towns and MSAs.

GeoLytics now offers a market segmentation tool. Our SPECTRUM segments allow users to profile their customers as well as evaluate locations for their suitability. This specialized product can help you compete with large businesses that have large marketing research budgets.
Each of the 208,000 block groups are classified into sixty-four segments on the basis of a wide range of demographic characteristics. The idea behind segmentation is that people tend to gravitate towards communities with other people of similar backgrounds, interests, and income. Thus using our segmentation models you will be able to find other like-minded individuals to your current customer database.
Geocoding & TelcoCD
Our Geocoding and Zip+4 products let users append demographic information to their files by street addresses, latitude/longitude, or zip+4. Geocoding can be done for a single address in our SiteDVD, which produces a detailed demographic report for three radii around your address or latitude/longitude. Geocoding can also be accomplished in a batch mode of thousands or millions of addresses with our GeocodeDVD. If you don't have complete street addresses, our Zip+4 CD appends geographic and demographic information to each zip+4 record. TelcoCD maps and profiles telephone area codes, area codes with their 3 digit prefix code, and local calling areas. Lastly, StreetDVD provides hundreds of geographic layers released by the U.S. Census Bureau to enhance your mapping software products.

Comparing data from different census years can be a difficult task due to changing geographic boundaries. Our Normalized Data Product line assists researchers with comparisons of data across time by adjusting and weighting the census data to account for changes in geographies.
Our individual normalized product line includes:
Neighborhood Change Database (1970-2010) - this Tract level product allows you to easily compare data from 1970, 80, 90, 2000, and soon 2010 data in one report. The 2010 NCDB will be released at the end of the Summer 2013.
1980 in 2010 Boundaries - the entire 1980 Long and Short Form data sets normalized to the various 2010 boundaries.
1990 Long Form in 2000 BoundariesBoundaries - the entire 1990 Long Form data set normalized to the various 2000 boundaries.
1980 in 2000 BoundariesBoundaries - the entire 1980 Long and Short Form data sets normalized to the various 2000 boundaries.
Our normalized product packages include:

Planners Package - includes the 2000 Long Form in 2010 Boundaries, the 2010 ACS, and our Estimates and Projections so you get 4 time points to compare in the same geographic boundaries.
CensusCD Neighborhood Change Database [NCDB] - This single CD product is the easiest way to compare 1000 variables from each of the 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000, and 2010 US Censuses.The 1970, 1980, 1990, and 2000 data sets come in both its year-specific boundaries and also weighted to the 2010 Census Tract boundaries. When you use it in the year-specific format, the data and maps are identical to that found in the CensusCD product for that given year. However, the NCDB is limited to Census Tracts only. Therefore, smaller geographies (block group) or larger geographies (zip code, county, or state) are not available in the NCDB. This product is ideally suited for neighborhood (tract) time series analysis over the five census periods. Regional planning groups, government agencies, and researchers looking at changes over time for these smaller areas often find this to be the best choice.

Crime Reports allow access to the UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING PROGRAM DATA for 9 years: 1998-2006 from the U.S. Dept. of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation. The data contains 669 crime variables from 19464 agencies.
The data can be seen at the national level or broken down to the state or agency level. The reports are created in multiple formats (comma separated, tab separated, dbf, or a summary report) to be exported to other statistical and database applications. The national or state data can be run as a map but there are no boundaries for mapping of the agency based files.

Custom Reports - We regularly run custom reports for individuals and agencies providing just the variables needed for the area specified. Sometimes it is a radius around a potential location that a customer is thinking of developing and needs to know how many people there are within 3 miles and what their income levels are. Other times it is information about ethnic breakouts by tracts across a state or the country at large. These are generally run right out of our products and are usually purchased by groups that do not need the complete software (or don't want to learn how to use it). These customers generally only need one set of answers and a custom report is a quicker and simpler solution. Reports start at $150.
Area Segmentation - We can create a specific weighting file to determine which parts of an area qualify using your agency specifications. You tell us what your target audience has as its characteristics and we will rank order the entire area by how well it correlates to this target profile.
For example, we created a weighting file for a state government agency that needed to determine which Block Groups in their state met the mandated definition of "Distressed Block Groups". In their state to be "distressed" it had to meet at least 5 of 8 indicators (high unemployment, low high school graduation rates, high child poverty rates, high senior poverty rates, high single-mother with children in poverty rates, low per capita income, high percentage of minorities, high percentage of multiple people sharing living limited space). This file will then be used to determine which block groups are distressed and the level of distress. The government agency will then use this as the method for determining where to invest in programs, where to offer additional resources, and what areas qualify for different funding sources. We can custom tailor the variables used and the cut-offs to meet whatever your agency or state needs require. The pricing for this sort of project is about $2,500 depending upon the constraints.

Special Data Sets
Geocoding Services - Geocoding takes an entire database of addresses and assigns the appropriate latitude/longitude coordinate to each address. It then assigns the Census Block for that coordinate. Our GeocodeDVD goes one step further. As a default we will append 60+ demographic variables to each address. But as a service we can also customize the demographic data appended to better meet your specific needs. The appended data will allow you to profile your customers or identify locational differences between stores. Customers normally purchase our GeocodeDVD and geocode their address lists themselves, but if you don't want to have to do it yourself, we would be happy to do it for you. The pricing will depend upon the number of addresses being coded and whether or not we need to append custom selected variables.
Custom-built Databases / Full Product Development
Below are two examples; one is a dataset, the other an entire product designed to meet the specific requirements of two organizations. A third example is the Neighborhood Change Database, which we built for the Urban Institute, with funding from the Rockefeller Foundation.
Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
HUD awarded GeoLytics Solicitation number Q1Q-NCS-P0014 to Develop a Data Access Tool for 1990 Census Data STF4 Tables 59 and 60. These data provide detailed information regarding housing conditions, and are of great importance to HUD economists. GeoLytics was asked to develop a database "Housing/Data Access Tool" (H/DAT), that would allow HUD personnel who need to access these data an easy way to select, process, report, and map these data.
During this project it was necessary for GeoLytics to import, clean, validate and then process the original data. The data was then converted into a proprietary compressed format. The final product has a menu-driven interface that allows the user to form his/her own queries and thus create his/her own custom set of data from these tables. To make the reporting more powerful we also added a mapping component that displays the various geographic levels.
