We let you find the answers. Why! It is because the local growth in population, median income, disposable income, etc. The local growth of leading indicators are typically the core variables that affect risk and prices. So you can not only see what local market variables are growing or declining, but what will be the actual forecast number are in the next 36-months.
Why Local Forecast is so Critical
Typically any large metro market forecast has HUGE errors when compared to any local market forecast. For instance, the metro market of San Francisco had a forecast of 7.1% for a period over the next 36-Months. But the San Francisco metro market has over one thousand (1,000) local markets. We tested and back-tested, forecasts on over 5-year time periods. The range of 36-Month Forecasts during the same time period, the local forecasts ranged between (-16.87% to + 23.54%). Thus the true error of the 7.1% forecast is off by OVER 20% of the local Census Block Group level.
Nearly all major cities of the USA, have over 1,000 local markets and Census Block Groups. Since all major cities have a large population, and the Census Block Group has around a population of 1,000. Local MATTERS!
Many times, any demographic, economic, and forecast at the large city level, has over a 300% error, compared to the local market data and forecasts. To clearly see this fact, is your median income last month the exact same as the median income in your city last month? Or is it different?

A comparison of past predictions against true values over the last 36 months has resulted in an assignment of confidence numbers to Growth Maps forecast. The accuracy ranges from 0.986% to 4.065%. FYI, 4.065% is ~ ±2%.
|Census Block Group Level||Census Track Level||County Level||State Level||National Level|
|Accuracy of 25% of locations||0.986%||0.618%||0.558||0.318%||0.307|
|Accuracy of 50% of locations||1.871%||1.261%||1.088%||0.712%||0.527%|
|Accuracy of 75% of locations||2.426%||2.019%||1.731%||1.099%||0.801%|
|Accuracy of entire set||4.065%||3.608%||2.913%||1.678%||1.279%|
Note, of the 216,062 Census Block Groups in the USA, we remove 1,680 Block Groups. These 1,680 Block Groups have under 100 Households and have had very little population changes in the last 6 years, so we remove them, to increase the overall accuracy of our Block Groups forecasts.
Similarly, of the 72,261 Census Tracts in the USA, we remove 39 Census Tracts, which have had very little population changes in the last 6 years, to increase the overall accuracy of our Census Tract forecasts.
Thus for 50% of the Census Block Groups the error is less, than 1.871% and these Blocks are where a smart investor would invest most long-term capital compared to areas with a higher margin of error. So the Growth Maps system isn’t just telling the future price changes, but also where and when to buy or sell in the future, and leverages a single GUI interface based up the expected changes in prices on ALL core geospatial levels.
