This system provides data for individual cities from a database of special
tabulations of the Standard
Statistical Establishment List (SSEL) provided by the Bureau
of the Census. This is the same data used in the
County Business Patterns publications. SOCDS presents CBPSE data in two different time series: 1) the 1991-2002 series (based on the the past 1990 Standard for
Metropolitan Statistical Areas and Primary Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs/PMSAs) as established
in June 30, 1999) and 2) the 2003-2007 series (based on the current 2000 Standard
including both Metropolitan and Micropolitan Core Based Statistical Areas (CBSAs) as established in
December 2003). |
1991-2002The 1991-2002 time series contains data for 114 central cities and their associated 101 metropolitan areas. These include the 100 largest central cities, plus 14 additional cities so that each state is represented. For 77 of these cities (73 metropolitan areas) 1991 data are available. In New England States, metropolitan areas follow the New England County Metropolitan Area (NECMA) definition. The "Suburbs" in each metropolitan area are defined as the metropolitan area total less the sum of data for all the central cities for which data are available. When output tables display 1991 data, suburb data are calculated using only those central cities for which 1991 data are available. The CBPSE data provided to HUD were in Standard Industry Classification (SIC) format for 1991-1997 and in North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) format for 1998-2002. In order to facilitate comparison to earlier years, SOCDS presents estimates of 1998-2002 CBPSE data in SIC format.
2003-2007The 2003-2007 time series contains data for 1205 principal cities and their associated 907 metropolitan areas. The "Suburbs" in each metropolitan area are defined as the metropolitan area total less the sum of data for all the principal cities for which data are available. CBPSE data for 2003 to 2007 are in NAICS format.
