The CDXZipStream ACS data feeds for state, county, ZIP code (ZCTA), place, CBSA (Core-Based Statistical Area) and Tract have been updated with the latest data releases from the U.S. Census Bureau. These data are from the American Community Survey, which surveys hundred of thousands or individual addresses monthly. It is the largest and most detailed survey that the US Census conducts. These feeds are available in the CDXZipStream Premium ACS version. Data are aggregated over the years 2018 through 2022.
The demographic areas covered in all ACS feeds are: age, population, household size, household income, individual earnings, race and ethnicity, educational attainment, school enrollment, housing value and rent, mortgage status, and marital status. For a full listing of all data fields included in the feeds, please download the CDXZipStream Data Feeds and Definitions file here.
If you already own CDXZipStream ACS Premium and have an active data maintenance contract, select the "Account" option on the CDXZipStream Excel menu and click on "Check for Available Database Updates". Then select the option to update your premium database.
For users without an active account you can update your data feeds by logging into your on-line account on CDXTech.com. Under "My Account", then "Product Management", select "Buy Data Update" and then purchase the Premium Maintenance contract. If you don't have the correct CDXZipStream version select "Upgrade License" in the account area and select the option to upgrade to the ACS version. The latest data will automatically be included with your purchase.
We have just released CDXZipStream version 5.4. For existing users with access to the CDXRadius function we’ve added the ability to center the radius on a specific latitude and longitude as well as zip codes. This version also now includes U.S. Census 2020 data as part of the CDXZipStream demo along with access to the new 2020 Census data feed. Additionally, we’ve also updated our Maptitude functions to support the 2023 Caliper Maptitude release. Other improvements were made as well including updated routing maps with the CDXRouteBing function.
To use the new CDXRadius capability, simply enter the numeric latitude and longitude separated by a pipe character (instead of a zip code) as shown in the image below.
This will allow you to more accurately center radius results on your exact business or other central site.
To get this new feature you need to install CDXZipStream version 5.4.1 or better which is the current trial version on our site. There is no cost to get access to the update. The installation file for this can be downloaded here.
