Demographic & Economic Statistics - For Specific Areas of San Francisco
- SF Prospector database: Current demographic data (estimates) and business statistics for specific San Francisco neighborhoods, zip codes, and supervisorial districts. Three separate demographic reports are available for each area, plus geographic business counts that include names and addresses of businesses in the area by type. The GIC staff can provide guidance with using this database.
- Federal Financial Institution Examining Counsel's Census Reports: Has current statistics/estimates by Census Tracts only--click on Retrieve by County and use links on left side for additional reports. (The GIC has San Francisco maps of Census Tracts for 2000. The Association of Bay Area Governments Web site also has Census 2000 S.F. Tract/Block maps --use the index map, which is the first file #000, to find the relevant detailed maps)
- Fact Sheet from the U.S. Census Bureau Web site has nice demographic profiles for zip codes. Type the zip code in the ZIP code box and select GO.
- S.F. Legislative Analyst's Report: 2000 Census Data by Supervisorial District
Tailored and/or In-Depth Statistics:
Data sets from the 2000 Decennial Census on the U.S. Census Bureau Web site must be used to locate statistics that are more specific or detailed than the quick statistics from the sources listed above (for instance, for "unmarried-partner households" statistics for gay relationships), and/or for specific locations within San Francisco not available in SF Prospector (see above). The detailed 2000 Decennial Census data collected by the Census Bureau, including Census Tracts, is only available online.
Tips: For the types of demographic information collected, see the Census Bureau's AmericanFactfinder People page. For areas smaller than the entire city of San Francisco, it is recommended to use Census Tracts for the geography type to tailor the geographic area desired for compiling statistics. The GIC has San Francisco maps of Census Tracts for 2000, and tract/block maps are also available via the Association of Bay Area Government's Web site (use the index map, which is the first file #000, to find the relevant detailed maps). The GIC staff can provide guidance with searching the Census Web site.
