2010 Census on Google Maps

Census 2010 - Mapping the Hard to Count

Last month the City University of New York (CUNY) released an interactive mapping site to pinpoint census tracts that the U.S. Census Bureau considers difficult to enumerate. The site has now released two new features, Twitter integration and area-specific stats to download.

Real-time, Geo-located Twitter Feed
The “Twitter” tab displays a list of the latest Census-related tweets, and also shows them on the map. The map shows tweets with either the #Census or #Census2010 hashtag.

Area-specific Stats for Downloading
When you click on the map and highlight a state, county, metro area, or tract, a download link is now provided in the hard-to-count statistics popup window. You can now not only view the data, but access it directly in Excel and Open Document formats.
