Welcome to CENSBase 5 CENSBase 5 is Gerstco’s latest release of its powerful U.S. Census data-mining software tool. With lightning quick calculations on the latest 2010 Census tabulation CENSBase 5 is an easy and flexible gateway to the latest demographic data available on the U.S. civilian labor force. The 2010 Dataset CENSBase 5 includes a streamlined and optimized version of the EEO Tabulation of the 2006-2010 American Community Survey – the official 2010 EEO data offering from the U.S. Census Bureau. This dataset consists of approximately 10 gigabytes of detailed demographic data accessible via scores of options and criteria. Effortless Power The single-screen interface of CENSBase 5 places a staggering amount of power at your fingertips. With literally six mouse clicks you are presented with a full demographic breakdown by gender and race in just a few seconds. The straightforward four-step process for mining Census data in CENSBase 5 can be immediately understood and will have you producing results moments after you first open the software. Speed and Accuracy Through Gerstco’s creative database design, CENSBase 5 is able to provide split-second calculations from the mutli-gigabyte 2010 dataset. While the most complex calculation may take “as long as” 1 to 3 seconds to perform, most calculations are completed while the sound of your mouse click is still in the air. Such speed gives you the luxury to examine scenarios as quickly as you can think of them. The presentation of each calculation in a clear, easy-to-read result at the bottom of the CENSBase 5 screen helps to ensure a clear understanding of every query. There is no need to strain your eyes over spreadsheet output or extraneous results; numbers and percentages are presented cleanly and clearly on-screen, or in corresponding printed reports.
