2014 US Esri Data Update for Business Analyst Desktop and Server Now Available

We are pleased to announce the availability of the 2014 US Esri Data Update for Business Analyst Desktop and Server.

Esri’s 2014/2019 demographic updates uphold the new era in data development: retaining the best from our past while adapting to changes in source data.

  • The 2014/2019 updates are the first to include an additional source database from Metrostudy that more than doubles Esri’s geographic coverage and the number of units planned and completed. The addition of this database gives the housing unit update a finer level of granularity and insight into smaller housing markets across the nation. Tracking residential development since 2010, Esri’s enhanced demographic and spatial analysis tools provide better information for the five-year forecasts than past trends.
  • Esri’s capability to assess change at the block level has proven effective in assessing large-scale damages from natural disasters. The 2014 updates incorporate Esri’s damage assessments from the Black Forest fire in Colorado (June 2013) and the tornado damage in Moore, Oklahoma (May 2013).

You can read more about these updates in the Demographic Update Methodology or take a look at What’s Trending in 2014 in this white paper from Esri’s Data Development team.

  • This update marks the introduction of Esri’s new 2014 Tapestry Segmentation system. This Tapestry system incorporates the effects of growth and decline in the last decade on established consumer markets plus the emergence of new markets populated by the Millenials and immigration. Reflecting the increasing diversity among American consumers, Tapestry now includes 67 distinct market segments and 14 summary groups. Read more about the new Tapestry LifeMode groups and segments and the methodologybehind them.
