Comprehensive Plan Commonly Requested Data Build Your Own Datasheet

Welcome to! The Maine State Data Center has provided this online tool to make it easier for you to access economic and demographic data for Maine. The selection menus will allow you to choose the data, geographies, and time periods you're interested in. We've included commonly requested data about population, demographics, housing, retail sales, and employment. As new data are released, this site will be updated. Please note that the Office of Policy and Management does not collect any of this data itself, but instead has assembled it from various sources, including:

  • U.S. Census Bureau
  • U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis
  • MaineHousing
  • Maine Department of Labor
  • Maine Office of Data, Research, and Vital Statistics
  • Maine Revenue Services

To begin accessing data, please select one of the three tabs above. The Comprehensive Plan tab contains data specifically designed for use by towns in the comprehensive planning process. The Commonly Requested Data tab contains several tables each containing frequently requested data on a particular topic. The Build Your Own Spreadsheet tab allows you to choose only those data elements, geographies, and time periods you want. For further information about the Maine State Data Center, please visit
