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.

    LA County VMT by City (2016) (Modelled) | Last Updated 2019-12-06T23:13:12.000Z

    Emissions from passenger vehicles and trucks are estimated based on VMT by vehicle type. VMT for each jurisdiction is estimated using trip-based travel forecasting models developed by Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG). SCAG’s regional travel demand model analyzes transportation network and socioeconomic data such as population, household, and employment, to forecast daily vehicle trips for each traffic analysis zone (TAZ). Model outputs include: • Vehicle trips by type: including cars, light trucks, medium duty trucks, heavy duty trucks, and transit vehicles • Vehicle trip lengths by trip purpose • Vehicle trip origins and destinations Based on vehicle trips analysis, VMT calculations are performed for all cities within LA County (except for the City of Avalon), including unincorporated areas that are under direct County control. Using CARB Emissions Factors (EMFAC) model, CO2 and N2O emissions are estimated by multiplying emissions rates with vehicle activity data in all cities and unincorporated areas within the South Coast (SC) sub-area and the Mojave Desert (MD) sub-area. Sub-area emissions are then disaggregated based on speed bin by time of day and vehicle profile to estimate GHG emissions from into passenger vehicle and heavy duty trucks.

    Mosquitoes Trap Data (May 2011 to Sep 2015) | Last Updated 2019-08-08T16:54:13.000Z

    Capture results of mosquitoes from various locations in Edmonton. These collections are from standard New Jersey light traps that are commonly used to record changes in abundance of mosquitoes before and after control campaigns and to compare seasonal and annual fluctuations in population. Since not all mosquito species are attracted equally to light traps, the City uses a variety of other trapping and survey methods (with their own limitations) to monitor mosquitoes. Not all trap collection sites are factored into the historical averages. Some data can be incomplete due to trap failure. Some trap locations change over time. Trap collections reflect, not absolute population levels, but mosquito activity, which is influenced by changing environmental conditions (temperature, humidity, wind, etc.). The weekly averages do not include any male mosquitoes or any females of species that do not typically bite people. Each data set reflects the mosquito activity of the week previous to the collection date. To complement this dataset, there is the Rainfall Guage data which measures rainfall data in the Greater Edmonton area -

    Opportunity Zones | Last Updated 2022-05-04T18:09:05.000Z

    Opportunity Zones are a new community development program established by Congress as a part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, they are designed to encourage long-term private investments in low-income communities. This program provides a federal tax incentive for taxpayers who reinvest unrealized capital gains into "Opportunity Funds," which are specialized vehicles dedicated to investing in low-income areas called "Opportunity Zones."The zones themselves are to be comprised of low-income community census tracts and designated by governors in every state. South Carolina designated 25 percent of qualifying census tracts as an Opportunity Zone. Qualifying Zones are based on the 2011-2015 American Community Survey.
