Social Explorer and Census Bureau Collaborate on Census Explorer
Social Explorer collaborated with the Census Bureau to create Census Explorer, a new visualization project, that launches today in connection with the release of the latest American Community Survey data (the five-year file from 2008 to 2012).
Powered by Social Explorer, Census Explorer opens up data to the public through interactive maps developed by Social Explorer. The site's easy-to-use online tools encourage users to explore demographic change from 1990 to the present, both nationwide and in their neighborhoods. Visitors can examine variables related to population, seniors, foreign born, education, labor force, housing, and income.
Please visit www.census.gov/censusexplorer, and check out Social Explorer's own mapping and reporting tools for more in depth data and visuals.
