Make new discoveries about your neighborhood through the power of American Community Survey statistics and the U.S. Census Bureau’s new mapping tool, Census Explorer.
Choose from eight different topics, including median household income, labor force participation and percent of the population 65 and older and explore these statistics for states, counties and census tracts.
Census Explorer includes not only the latest American Community Survey five-year statistics (2008-2012) but also information from the 1990 and 2000 censuses, so you can see how your community has changed over the past two decades.
Replacing the decennial census long form, the American Community Survey provides timely annual statistics to communities throughout the nation.
