  3. What similar or related data should the user be aware of?

How reliable are the data; what problems remain in the data set?

  1. How well have the observations been checked?

    Accuracy of the layer file is dependent on the accuracy of the dependent geography and table objects.

  2. How accurate are the geographic locations?

  3. How accurate are the heights or depths?

  4. Where are the gaps in the data? What is missing?

    Covers all of King County

  5. How consistent are the relationships among the observations, including topology?

    In the entire SF 1 series, there are 47 physical tables spanning 331 logical tables. Not all tables are related to each geography (place, tract, block group and block). Of the 331 tables, 269 are population tables and 62 are housing tables. Of the 269 population tables, 177 relate down to the block level, 82 relate down to the tract level and 10 relate to the county level. Of the 62 housing tables, 58 relate down to the block level, 4 relate down to the tract level and none relate to the county level. Some tables are repeated by each major race and Hispanic or Latino groups: 14 population tables and 4 housing tables are shown down to the block level and 5 population tables are shown down to the tract level.
