The Spatial Trends in Coastal Socioeconomics (STICS) maintained by NOAA's National Ocean Service Special Projects Division, 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)
