Census Profiles

Reports can be produced for any combination of census tracts. One option, if desired, is to include all census tracts whose center points lie within a given distance of a given point. Most information is from the 1980, 1990, 2000 and 2010 censuses and the most recent American Community Survey (currently the 2014-2018 American Community Survey). Comparative data from previous population counts and forecast data for future years are also included.

Building Permit Reports

Reports can be produced showing data on both residential and non-residential new construction, additions, alterations, repairs and demolitions by council district, county and school district. Data is presented for the period from the beginning of the year to the end of the last quarter processed. In addition to tables, the reports present a chart of residential units constructed over the past several years, and maps of the locations of all residential new construction and of non-residential new construction valued at $50,000 or more. There is also a report summarizing activity since 1970.

Building permit data is also available in the form of building permits aggregated by census tracts and listings of individual building permits. Additional reports compare Kansas City, Mo. building permits to those of the metro area.
