Spatial Trends in Coastal Socioeconomics

The Spatial Trends in Coastal Socioeconomics (STICS) recompiles socioeconomic data to estimate demographic and economic attributes for a variety of important coastal management jurisdictions, like watersheds, floodplains, coastal counties, and place-based coastal management programs:

Currently available datasets:

  • Demographics Trends (1970-2011) from the U.S. Census Bureau
  • Economic Trends (1990-2011) from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA)
  • Demographic Projections (1970-2040) from Woods and Poole Economics, Inc.
  • Critical Facilities (2012) from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)

NOTE: STICS has moved! This STICS website will be taken down soon and the Quick Report Tool has already been removed. The rest of the information on this site is now hosted directly by the NOAA Coastal Services Center. Please visit the new STICS webpage at http://csc.noaa.gov/digitalcoast/data/stics.
