How To Use Census Data
"Census summary results should prove as useful to state and local constituencies as they do to the federal government, informing all sorts of programming and planning decisions. So what data is available, and where can it be found?. Government Technology Magazine reports on the ins and outs of using Census 2000 data: "Census 2000 summary data sets are released on CD, DVD and the Internet. They are available for download and for interactive search, query and mapping via the Census Bureau's American FactFinder (AFF) Web site. The AFF site, which was built by IBM Global Services on contract to the Census Bureau, is an excellent tool for exploratory analysis, offering statistical tables and thematic maps and interfaces suitable for a range of users from school children to subject-matter experts."
