SEMCOG was created 44 years ago because of the imperative that elected officials think beyond their own communities’ boundaries. This has never been more important particularly in today’s economic reality. As you think beyond boundaries, we have data to help you. Community Profiles (http://www.semcog.org/Data/bycommunity.cfm) are SEMCOG’s most requested data. These online data profiles are designed to deliver a wide variety of demographic, economic, housing, transportation, and land use data for each community. It provides accurate and timely information at your fingertips.
To expand your ability to think beyond the boundary of your own community, we have a tool that helps you aggregate data from Community Profiles to the larger area of your interest. For example, a group of communities are interested in sharing services. To get a profile of all these communities combined, they can create a “custom profile” at their fingertips – click the “Custom Profile” link as shown below; in a new window, click on the desired community names in the select box; update the items to include using the checkboxes; click “Create Custom Profile” button. Voila! The data are aggregated into a single profile for all the selected communities.
New data are being added to Community Profiles continuously. Keep using it, and let us know what else could be helpful to you.
