Example text

This makes overinterpretation less likely. The arrangement of MOE data in detailed tables, in the columns immediately to the right of the estimates, makes manipulation of these tables in spreadsheets very difficult, especially when multiple geographic areas are downloaded at the same time and when these areas need to be aggregated into a custom statistical area. Summary File After we had completed the work of creating our profile, the Census Bureau released a prototype summary file (SF) with the same data as presented in the detailed tables.

The ACE was designed to produce the most accurate estimate of housing units possible by estimating the number of housing units that were missed by the census listing, by the independent listing, and by both listings. Population Division Estimates The Population Division computes estimates of housing units for each county in the nation (summed up from sub-county data). At each census, these estimates are adjusted, or baselined, to closely match the housing unit counts from the census. From this baseline count, the subsequent yearly estimates are computed.

How can this best be done? Controlling to the Population Estimates One area for possible research is in further controlling the ACS to the population estimates. This control could be a two-way raking, raking first to the age/sex/race/Hispanic controls at the county level and then to the population totals at the sub-county (or sub-weighting-area level). This two-way raking would be similar to the method described above to force agreement between occupied housing units, households, and householders.
