SCAN Population Tables

The purpose of the Population module is to generate interactive statistics of census data. The intended audience is researchers, public health officials, students, and the general public. The data originates from the census data from Office of Research and Statistics. Users can select year, race, sex, age, region, and birth characteristic as row or column variables. Using the drop down boxes can further restrict these same variables. Users can generate on-the-fly maps and tables of the frequencies, and percentages of the selected data.

The interpretation of tables and maps is the users responsibility. Thorough labels are provided however to make interpretation more intuitive. Many supporting pages are provided with definitions; examples of rate calculations, Division of Biostatistics and Health GIS contact information, and frequently asked questions to assist the user in interpreting this data.
