County-level Data Sets

Socioeconomic indicators like poverty rates, population change, unemployment rates, and education levels vary across U.S. States and counties. ERS compiles the latest statistics on these measures and provides maps and data for U.S. States and counties/county equivalents, including Puerto Rico when available.

Data are also available for download in Excel. Downloaded files include the county-level Rural-Urban Continuum Codes and Urban Influence Codes.

Errata: On November 9, 2022, the download file on the Education page of the County-level Data Sets data product was reposted to correct an error in the calculation of the variables (number and percent) for “adults with a high school diploma only, 2007-11” and “adults completing some college or associate’s degree, 2007-11.” No other data were affected, including those available through the HTML reports.
