Fun With The Census

Posted By on Fri, Aug 26, 2011 at 11:02 AM

Remember last year when we all got those forms in the mail asking us about how many people lived in our houses and what race and age we all were? That was the 2010 Census. Since then, the results have been thoroughly picked apart, but a new interactive tool from CNN allows the curious to do their own picking apart of some of the most popular data—visually.

The national map allows users to look at population change, total population, population density and population by race divided by state, county and Census tract. The multi-colored result is a fascinating study in the demographics of our country.

By the way, if you're fond of living really close to a lot of other people, head to central California. If you like lots of space to yourself, try the middle of Wyoming.
