American FactFinder - Statistics Galore!

| No TrackBacks

Census.jpg The United States Federal Census is taken every ten years by the Department of Commerce. The Census Bureau is currently gearing up for the next Census tabulation slated to begin in 2010. This in-depth data provides statistics on population, housing, economics and geography for the United States. Census data is a gold mine of authoritative information for businessess, researchers, historians and anyone else interested in data. Before the advent of the electronic 2000 Census, people would rely on the dozens of paper indexes and tables that would slowly become available to the library. Looking for specific information was often difficult to find. Now with the American FactFinder, Census data is at your fingertips.
