Regional Information Center Collection and State Library Resources

Customized Demographic Profiles

 

The Regional Information Center can provide demographic information for any kind of geographic area you might need -- circles, polygons (you name the boundaries), ZIP codes, as well as census tracts, counties, cities and other standard geographic units.

Available for any location in Maryland, the data are generated from the census or (for more current information) from a commercial data source and are customized to your geographic specifications. They can include anything from population and housing units to education levels, poverty status, occupation, means of transportation to work, and disability.

Maps of your chosen area or areas can be created, providing you with a complete, easy-to-read profile of a neighborhood, target service area, or potential business location. Data for several places can be printed on one page for easy comparison purposes.

Pricing 

Standard Census Bureau units of geography (county, city, zip code, or census block) are $1.00 each.

For circles or other user-defined areas the charge is $10.00 for the first table for each geographic unit, and $1.00 for each table thereafter. Sales tax and delivery charges are extra.

Data tables can be configured with as many as six geographic units in columns on a page, or each unit can be printed on a separate page. Cost is per geographic unit.

Call (410-732-0500) or e-mail (ric@prattlibrary.org) the Regional Information Center for more information.
