Census and Statistical Data

The Planning Department, as an affiliate of the New York State Data Center, assists with the collection and dissemination of demographic, social and economic data. Use the subject links at the left for a range of population, social, and housing themes (by municipality). Below are interactive data visualizations with the most current Census data.

The Department is a major repository for census and statistical data, and works closely with the U.S. Census Bureau and other government statistical agencies. Information collected from the census is used to distribute over $300 billion in federal funding to states and local governments. In addition, census information determines how many seats each state receives in the U.S. House of Representatives and how many electoral votes each state receives for presidential elections. Funding and planning for schools, infrastructure, and community programs and services relies on census data.
