Subject: Mapping ACS Data Including Margins of Error
Following yesterday's SDC Steering Committee conference call with the Census Bureau, the following information was shared with us and I thought you'd like to know about this:
George Mason University's Dept. of Geography and GeoInformation Science has developed a mapping extension that makes it possible to incorporate information on statistical uncertainty into maps featuring ACS estimates. Currently, instructions are provided in the extension's documentation for using the mapping extension with AFF 1; In the future, the extension will include instructions for AFF II.
The extension automates many tasks normally required to use ArcGIS for this purpose.
The extension works with versions 9.3 and 10.0 of ArcGIS and is available for downloading free of charge at the following link:
Please feel free to share this information with affiliate organizations, universities, or others in your state who might benefit.

I recall seeing somewhere on the web a table from drawn from the 2007-9 American Community Survey that compares the rate at which residents or workers (not sure which) bike or walk to work in larger cities. This is not a Factfinder table; I don't recall the source.
Would anyone have a lead or suggestion for us? We are hoping to find a similar table from the 2008-10 ACS.

Hi Everyone -
The STEP funds require a 50% non-federal match. We do not know how much
will be available in FY 2012, but it is worth trying, if you have any
ideas and have local funds to support the required match.
