When you use GeoLytics to produce maps, tables, or datasets for research or publication, you must cite GeoLytics as the source of the data. The standard format for a citation is:
"Product Name", GeoLytics, Inc., East Brunswick, NJ, Year Published.
The following are suggested formats for common citation styles. Some judgment calls have been made in determining these formats, as standards have not yet been established for online demographic data. We suggest using publication dates for the CD versions of GeoLytics demographic data, which have the same content as what's online. You may find publication dates by searching for GeoLytics demographic data on CD using WorldCat.
|APA||Title. (Year of publication). GeoLytics [online demographic data]. Place of publication: Name of publisher.||CensusCD 1990 Long Form in 2000 Boundaries. (2002). Geolytics [online demographic data]. East Brunswick, NJ: GeoLytics, Inc.|
