If anyone is wondering about specifics, I will describe how I recently
created a "crosswalk" table that correlates census tracts in 1980 with
census tracts in 2000 in the Portland region (well, Washington,
Multnomah, and Clackamas counties), so that we could see poverty
trends over the last 25 years.
I used PostGIS, Census naming conventions ("FIPS codes"), and lots of
outer joins. So if you like that sort of thing, I would love to hear
your comments tomorrow!
