Layer name: LOCALSCAPE_DEMOGRAPHICS
Subject category: census
Title: LocalScape Demographics
Feature Count:
Feature Type: Table
Abstract: LocalScape_Demographics interpolates demographics for areas that do not follow census tract boundaries, including neighborhoods, community alliances, hospital districts, fire districts, school districts, council districts, legislative districts, cities, potential annexation areas, levy codes, appraisal market areas, map-view-extent, and user-specified polygons. The method of accomplishing this interpolation combines in-depth assessments data with demographics data. This method of interpolation is unique to King County.
Purpose: To bring data together from disparate sources in order to provide new insights.
