Social Explorer maps U.S. Census data

If you’re looking for a visual representation of Census data, you should check out Social Explorer.  The site has maps you can filter to look at population, race, religion, commuting time, income, etc. If it was on the Census form you can filter for it. You can save maps, and even create slideshows like this one, showing the areas where Michael Jackson grew up.

Besides maps you can also create customized reports of the information you are looking for under the Reports tab.

The free edition is open to the general public. If you have a UWNetID or other access through an educational institution, you can access the Professional edition.
