I'm not sure what you mean by "qualified households".  This is a term
in use for assistance programs to lower-income families, but it's not
clear what the context is for your question.

Can you provide some additional details?

In addition, detailed income statistics for some (not all) areas of
Virgina are already available for 2003....are these of interest?

This data is used by the company Mr. Handyman to allocate area for a
franchise. My question is correct. The qualified homes are income over
$100,000 per year based on 2002 statistics, as advised to us by the
Franchisor. (It is not "low income" criteria here.)

I want to study the areas in relation to 2002 statistics based on
which they are allocating areas. ( I will also analyse data of 2003.
Good for me to do fore-casting of the territory for future years.)

I do suspect the qualified homes may not be very accurate info
provided by the franchisor. They may have deliberately down played
some of the numbers, in the qualified homes, to make us feel better
while allocating territory. ( I do not understand, some territories
have 0 qualified homes and some have qualified homes same as Total
Homes. If the two numbers are same, does it mean that "100%
population" have over $100,000 income. This seems little baffling. It
is this Qualified HH data that may not be "very accurate", as I hinted
in my earlier e-mail. But some directional indicators needs to be
identified in the general county records to co-relate data being fed
to us by the Franchisor.)  However, if income profile can be linked in
some way, to over $100,000 then it is best for me to analyse and
proceed further.
Yes, 2003 is of interest for whatever areas it is available.

Hello again,

I'm still not sure quite what you're after here.  If the data in your
question were privately created by ---------- then there's no way I
know to re-create them, or double check their validity.

However, there's an enormous amount of publicly available data from
the Census Bureau, and you can find it pretty easily at their
FactFinder site:

For instance, searching on Herndon, Virginia, turns up a slew of
information, including:


Less than $10,000
$10,000 to $14,999
$15,000 to $24,999
$25,000 to $34,999
$35,000 to $49,999
$50,000 to $74,999
$75,000 to $99,999
$100,000 to $149,999
$150,000 to $199,999
$200,000 or more
Median household income (dollars)


As you can see, this data indicates that there are 6,675 households in
Herndon, VA, and that about 2,100 of them have incomes of $100,000 or

Is this the sort of information you're seeking?  If not, could you
explain a bit more fully what you're after.

Dear Pafalafa-ga:
I have been working since morning on the data. It seems I will have to
go the County Offices and sit with some one to get a feel for the data
and make head-way.
I am going to Loudoun County on Monday and hope to proceed further.
Thanks for your help. You may bill me for your efforts.

Dear Pafalafa-ga:
I glanced through the Loudoun County Info (...Summary..). It has
wealth of info, but generally overall picture. Also your reply gives
good "overall" info. What I am looking for is Tract# and number of
homes with over 100K income (based on any past year, 2002 to 2004).
Loudoun County does not give reference to Tract # at all.
I did found this specific info for "Fairfax County" and now I do have
100% needed data for Fairfax County, as under:
A. All Tract Nos with boundaries drawn on the county map. Excellent resource.
B. County map giving colored areas, for Income of 0-50K, 75K,100K,125K
& 200K. I am interested in dividing line of 100K (under and over).
Excellent resource.
C. A 24 page document printed by me giving Census and Subcensus Tract,
Single Family Homes, Duplex, Townhomes, Multiplex, Garden Apt., Mid
Rise Bldg., High Rise Bldg, Mobile Homes and TOTAL. My interest is in
Single Family and TOTAL Homes. It is fair estimate that Single Family
Homes will have income of over 100K generally.
All the above info from Fairfax County Web-site fairly matches with
the data provided by the Franchisor for some Tracts and is way off for
some other Tracts.

However no such data available for Loudoun County. My requiement is to
have Tract No. and income over 100K ( indirectly, Number of Single
Family Homes), and based on this specific info only, the Franchisor
will allot me the area of operation, covering 55,000 homes having
income over $100K. I have the option of opting diffent areas so that
the total is 55,000 homes. And also to look into the accuracy for the
data provided by the Franchisor. Franchisor is not giving me the
source of their data !!!!
So far Loudoun County site and the link with Growth Summary falls
short of my requirement. But I am sure, Loudoun County has to have the
needed data in their raw data collection folders. Hence my visit to
them is due on Monday. I have already posed them this question in my
e-mail to them.
Hope I succeed after visit on Monday.

Thanks for the kind words and rating.  Please let me know how your
visit to the county offices turned out...were they able to provide the
data you were looking for?

All the best,

yogibatra-ga rated this answer:4 out of 5 stars
The Researcher gave best poosible analysis and were sincere in their
effort. I am impressed. However the data available to work on was very
raw and somewhat vague accuracy wise. While I did get very accurate
answers from Loudoun County, I could get only partial answers from
Fairfax County or their web-site during my visits or phone calls.
This was the first time I took help from Google Answer Dept. I have a
better feel for it and will use them again after feeding little more
extensive data from my end.
Case closed.
Thanks folks,
Yogi Batra
