New 2010 Census Tracts Needed Now! RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are a vendor for over 1500 banks, mortgage companies and credit unions across the nation and assist them with Federal compliance under the Community Reinvestment Act and Home Mortgage Disclosure Act. Prior to the 2010 census tract changes we recommended all of our customers use MapPoint to assist in plotting their loan data and creating their federally mandated assessment areas. As of this date the new census tract changes have still not been updated in the program and our clients can no longer use your system. It is unfortunate, but until this is resolved our 1500+ customers are going to have to use another mapping product. Please advise as to the ETA of the inclusion of the new census tracts and new census demographics so that we may advise our customers appropriately.

  • Thank you for asking the question.  I have the same question - when are the 2010 census tract updates going to be available in MapPoint?  Does anyone know, is there an answer anywhere?

  • Microsoft - MSP 2013 is out now and still nobody has answered the question about the 2010 census data/tracts. NUMBER ONE QUESTION - HOW ARE YOU POSSIBLY USING THE census 2000 tracts that no longer apply??

  • Well, the US Census Bureau are still releasing the 2010-era data!  I doubt an instance of MapPoint is capable of simultaneously supporting two different boundary eras without quite a few changes.

    Here is the official release schedule:

  • You may have to consider alternative mapping software that does include the latest Tracts and Census demographics.

    UPDATE: As of July 2013 Maptitude ( www.MappingSoftware.com ) now also includes the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) Tract Census demographics to support the consumer compliance examination process. The FFIEC Census data is required for compliance under HMDA, CRA, and fair lending.
