CDX Census Tract Data Feed Update

We've updated the CDXZipStream Census Tract data feed with the latest information from the American Community Survey for the years 2014-2018.  The feed includes all census tracts in both the U.S. and Puerto Rico, and covers a wide array of demographic data such as: age, individual earnings, educational attainment, household size, household income, housing value and rent, marital status, population, race, and school enrollment.  Most of these where relevant are also provided by gender.

Since census tracts are on average about half the size of ZIP Codes, they offer a more precise demographic snapshot.  A complete listing and description of each demographic variable is provided in the downloadable document CDXZipStream Data Feeds and Definitions.  

To access the data, census tract codes (also referred to as FIPS codes) must be provided as input to an Excel worksheet.  CDX Technologies also offers a free Excel template that can identify census tract codes for an address list - please see the article Get Census Tract FIPS Codes in an Excel Template for more details.  Here is a video showing how this is done:


The census tract database is compatible with all demographic versions of CDXZipStream.  It is a separate purchase priced at $149.95 and can be purchased in your online account. Use the CDXZipStream menu "Buy Data Update" option.
