  1. Real and Believable Statistics

    How can you possible publish that MN District 5 is made up of 62% white ? This type of erroneous information is as ridiculous as the news media.

  4. THE 2019 Data Profile for Philadelphia 5-Year estimates

    The Black population under these criteria - Black alone 40.8% or 41% ; the Black alone or in combination with another race -44.1% using your limited criteria Barack Obama would have been grouped into the amorphous Two or more racial category. the more complete and accurate figure would be the 44.1%

  5. Include homeless populations.

    In california it says we have 13+ million households. And that we have 14+ million housing units. That leaves us with over a million vacant units. Are the people who live in hotels, motels cars and rvs included. And are hotels motels and inn counted as part of the housing units? Because they should not be. Unless they are extended stays because they have no other place to rent. Not long term business trips. But used as actually housing. If there are over a million vacant units and we don't have that many households to fill them then why are…

  6. add racial/ethnicity data by county

    You seem to break down county population in numerous ways, but not by race/ethnicity. An odd omission.

  10. Add ACS 5-year estimates

    1-year estimates are more susceptible to bad data. I'd love to be able to use Census Reporter, but can't confidently cite the ACS 1-year estimates in reports.

  12. Provide data at the level that is useful to rural communities.

    Federal rural development grant programs have stringent requirements for establishing eligibility for funding. Unfortunately, the data sets required to be used to establish eligibility render most rural communities "statistically invisible" For example: To find a community of 600 in a rural county of a western state, the closest you can get is census tract, block group or zip code, all of which are hundreds, sometimes thousands of square miles larger than the rural community needing federal assistance. This skews income data as well as the ability to identify the rural, unincorporated community in question.

    It would be much more useful…

  17. Identify similar cities for geographic profiles

    I would like to be able to easily see entities that have similar characteristics to the one I search for. Similarity could be restricted to identical entity types (places, metro areas, districts)

    For example, I search for Tucson, AZ (place) https://censusreporter.org/profiles/16000US0477000-tucson-az/

    I would like to see a list of similar Places could be presented for the major categories/buckets displayed:
    Population
    Economic
    Housing
    Social

  18. Use cartographic boundary shapefiles (to avoid Great Lakes states misshapen look)

    The Great Lakes states like Michigan and Wisconsin look funky because the shapefile includes the lakes themselves. The Census Bureau released the Cartographic Boundary Shapefiles that are clipped to the land area, which helps eliminate this issue.

  19. Use coefficient of variation when trying to assess the margin of error

    You have a dagger (†) warning for when the margin of error is 10% of the estimate, but the more appropriate way to do this is to use the coefficient of variation (see link below) to assess the MoE. It's also called the "relative standard error" and is a way to assess whether the margin of error is "too high" for the estimate to be of any use. I would recommend showing the dagger warning when the coefficient of variation exceeds 30%. For broader audience communication purposes, you could say something like, "The margin of error for this estimate is…

  20. Offer a way to match the Column code names

    .... (e.g. HD02_S159) between tables from different years.

    The Census only offers search by topic, not by Column codes. So in order to match columns between ACS and Census of different years, you have to download lots of data and then manually compare it to find Columns in common between years
