US Census Bureau — Data Access Tools

US Census Bureau Data Access Tools

The United States Census Bureau has a page out­lin­ing its data access tools. While the data being made avail­able is sta­tis­ti­cal data, not per­son­ally iden­ti­fi­able genealog­i­cal data, it should be of inter­est to geneal­o­gists to under­stand trends and the pop­u­la­tion trends and geog­ra­phy of the United States.

The site pro­vides large datasets for analy­sis, but also allows you to nav­i­gate into pop­u­la­tion demo­graph­ics for any county, state, or munic­i­pal­ity in the United States.

Here are some of the resources avail­able on the page:

  • Censtats — Applications avail­able include: Census Tract Street Locator, County Business Patterns, Zip Business Patterns, International Trade Data, and more.
  • QuickFacts — State and County QuickFacts pro­vides fre­quently requested Census Bureau infor­ma­tion at the national, state, county, and city level.
  • Online Mapping Tools — using TIGER and the American FactFinder
  • US Gazetteer — Place name, and ZIP code search engine.

I am look­ing for­ward to hav­ing the oppor­tu­nity to look at these resources.
