Another new website for data junkies


Recommended Posts

This site is in Beta and is really amazing. www.dataplace.org Most of the data is still 2000 census stuff, but they have started to show data from 2003 tax returns (gross income, poverty, Earned Income Tax Credit, etc.) They also have some very interesting Mortgage Info from the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act regarding subprime lending, conventional mortgages, and so on. They also have a ranking tool that compares your selected geography to others.

Here's our Area Ranking:

"Grand Rapids-Muskegon-Holland, MI Metro is a Metropolitan Area with total population of 1,088,514.

Grand Rapids-Muskegon-Holland, MI Metro has the 22nd highest Homeownership rate of any Metropolitan Area. It has the 47th lowest Poverty rate and the 10th highest Pct. of establishments in manufacturing. It ranks 17th lowest on Pct. employment in other services. It ranks 19th highest on Pct. employment in manufacturing. It ranks 6th highest on Establishments in manufacturing per 1,000 population."
