Land Area

Water Area

Land area is a measurement providing the size, in square miles, of the land portions of geographic entities for which the Census Bureau tabulates and disseminates data. Area is calculated from the specific boundary recorded for each entity in the Census Bureau's geographic database. Land area is based on current information in the TIGER® data base, calculated for use with Census 2010.

Water Area figures include inland, coastal, Great Lakes, and territorial sea water. Inland water consists of any lake, reservoir, pond, or similar body of water that is recorded in the Census Bureau's geographic database. It also includes any river, creek, canal, stream, or similar feature that is recorded in that database as a two- dimensional feature (rather than as a single line). The portions of the oceans and related large embayments (such as Chesapeake Bay and Puget Sound), the Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean Sea that belong to the United States and its territories are classified as coastal and territorial waters; the Great Lakes are treated as a separate water entity. Rivers and bays that empty into these bodies of water are treated as inland water from the point beyond which they are narrower than 1 nautical mile across. Identification of land and inland, coastal, territorial, and Great Lakes waters is for data presentation purposes only and does not necessarily reflect their legal definitions.

    Next Generation Simulation (NGSIM) Vehicle Trajectories and Supporting Data | Last Updated 2022-03-09T14:04:22.000Z

    Click “Export” on the right to download the vehicle trajectory data. The associated metadata and additional data can be downloaded below under "Attachments". Researchers for the Next Generation Simulation (NGSIM) program collected detailed vehicle trajectory data on southbound US 101 and Lankershim Boulevard in Los Angeles, CA, eastbound I-80 in Emeryville, CA and Peachtree Street in Atlanta, Georgia. Data was collected through a network of synchronized digital video cameras. NGVIDEO, a customized software application developed for the NGSIM program, transcribed the vehicle trajectory data from the video. This vehicle trajectory data provided the precise location of each vehicle within the study area every one-tenth of a second, resulting in detailed lane positions and locations relative to other vehicles.

    Semi-Annual Real Wages for Fulton County, Metro Atlanta and U.S. | Last Updated 2022-08-15T13:15:15.000Z

    This dataset contains the average real wages for Fulton County, metro Atlanta and the U.S. calculated semi-annually. Real wages represent actual (nominal) wages adjusted for inflation using the Consumer Price Index (CPI). Real wages are expressed in terms of 1982-1984 dollars. Semi-annual numbers are used because local area wages are reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) quarterly and CPI is reported every two months; therefore, reporting periods coincide twice a year. Real wages are reported as moving 12-month averages in order to better illustrate the general trend over time. Nominal wages and CPI are from the BLS; semi-annual real wages are calculated by the Fulton County Strategy & Performance Management Office.
