Community Data Analytics
We believe communities can only plan for their future if they have complete access to the information that matters to them. That is why ESI created the Community Data Analytics (CDA) team.
CDA provides up-to-date customized demographic analyses and projections for communities. Supported by a team of experienced planners, analysts, modelers, and econometricians, CDA works with clients to analyze local demographic trends and provide demographic multipliers that planning agencies, school districts, and fiscal specialists rely on for population forecasts and to understand projects’ fiscal, demographic, and traffic impact.
CDA has released the latest research in demographic multipliers. These new and improved multipliers serve a critical role in development impact studies which developers, school boards, local governments, and policymakers rely on to make appropriate land use and zoning decisions.
The multipliers have been developed using the most current American Community Survey Public Use Microdata Sample records and offer two sets of residential multipliers: school-age children per household, and average household size.
All reports are offered to the public for free and can be downloaded here.
Ensuring a community’s future success and development takes careful and accurate planning. Smart planning can only be effective when it’s based on the most up-to-date and precise data. CDA was created to provide this necessary insight into economic conditions and trends in communities across the United States.
