110 Maps That Explain America

Data USA claims to be "the most comprehensive website and visualization engine of public US Government data". It allows you to explore a wealth of government data about the demographics, economics, health and education of the United States.

The Maps section of Data USA contains over 110 different choropleth views of this data. These maps visualize the different data sets about America and the American people at county level. The sidebar for each map includes a list view of the top & bottom ten performing counties for the selected data. Each of these map views also includes the option to map the selected data for a number of different years.

The Stories section explores some of the most compelling narratives that emerge from the data. These stories also use interactive maps and other types of data visualization to help explain what the data tells us about America.

Each of the visualization in Data USA can be embedded on another website. The data for each of the visualizations can also be downloaded in CSV format.
