US Census Data

MVRPC is a Census Affiliate Organization.  As such, we provide assistance to U.S. Census Bureau’s various programs and maintain Census data for the Region dating from the most recent releases back to 1950. Please contact Elizabeth Whitaker, Senior Planner at 937.223.6323, if you have any Census-related questions, from requests for specific data to help navigating the Census website.


As a census affiliate MVRPC will be providing support to the U.S. Census Bureau for the next decennial Census in 2020.

It is important as a Region to make a strong effort to ensure a successful count of residents. The 2020 Census will determine the number of seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and is used to distribute billions of federal funds to local communities.

Census Regional Profile

MVRPC staff, using data from the 2010 Census, has put together a Regional Profile of the Miami Valley, along with some basic data for all jurisdictions in the region and individual profile sheets for eight counties.

The Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS) is an ongoing survey which provides data every year about things like income, education, veteran status, and transportation. MVRPC staff has put together a Regional Profile using data from the American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year estimates. Please visit the ACS introduction page before accessing the American Community Survey Regional Profile.

The Census Bureau, in partnership with other federal and state agencies, produces Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics data on employment and where employees live. MVRPC has used this data to prepare a regional profile of employment in the Miami Valley.
