Mapping America

Census Bureau of American Community Survey.

Browse local data from the Census Bureau's American Community Survey, based on samples from 2005 to 2009. Scroll your cursor over the map based on a zipcode and pull up the demographics for that region.

Local and state governments use statistical information the Census Bureau provides to distribute money to cities and towns. The census data help to plan and fund: school construction, transportation systems and highways, Police and fire precincts, public housing, and future utility needs.

Data analysts use census data to determine:how cities are growing and changing,sites for new businesses, if a community has the workforce a company needs, sites for day care and nursing care, and forecast future demand for products.

"Thank you for such a well designed site for this course! All the links work, and it is easy to maneuver from one place to another. I like how the assignments are clearly listed and have the date next to them. I can get right to learning when I log on rather than struggling to figure out how how to get from place to place. I’m taking another online course now and it is a nightmare and very frustrating.

Thanks for making this a good experience!"
