Hold on a second.  The FCC database is still a better choice because it is 
more complex with a carefully defined schema.   The Tiger database would be 
good for doing tests of type 1 and 3, but not for tests of types 2 and 4.

It would certainly be interesting to use the Tiger database as the basis for 
an additional type of test:

6) Very Large Data Set: querying, then updating, 300+ selected rows from a 
2,000,000 + row table.

... but I still see the FCC database as our best candidate for the battery of 
tests 1-5.
