Using these report generators you can download socioeconomic reports of communities, counties, & states, including aggregations and comparisons. The Economic Profile System (EPS) uses federal data sources, including the Bureaus of Economic Analysis, Census, & others. EPS is also known as the Human Dimensions Toolkit by the Forest Service.  Try it for yourself by clicking here.

    The Local Update of Census Addresses Operation (LUCA) program provides the only opportunity for tribal, state, and local governments to review and comment on the U.S. Census Bureau's residential address list for their jurisdiction prior to the 2020 Census. The Census Bureau relies on a complete and accurate address list to reach every living quarters and associated population for inclusion in the census. Census data is used to apportion representation among the states, draw congressional and state legislative districts, enforce voting rights and civil rights legislation by the Department of Justice, as well as distribute $400 billion dollars in federal funding, each year, to tribal, state, and local governments.
