Counting California (ICPSR 120)

Principal Investigator(s): California Digital Library; Library of California


A collaborative project funded by the California Digital Library and the Library of California, Counting California's interface gives users access to raw social science and economic data compiled by federal, state, and local agencies, and also allows users to collate and integrate data by topic, geography, title, and provider. The database covers the following topics: (1) agriculture and natural resources, (2) banking, finance, and insurance, (3) business and industry, (4) crime, law enforcement, and criminal justice, (5) education, (6) elections, (7) energy and public utilities, (8) health and vital statistics, (9) housing characteristics and costs, (10) income, poverty, and cost of living, (11) land, water, and climate, (12) population and demographics, (13) public finance, government, and taxes, (13) social services and public assistance, (14) transportation, and (15) work, labor, and employment. Counting California's goals also include insuring uniform, continuous access to both current and historical government data and to foster the ability to share data and work collaboratively between government agencies and other members of the data community.
