Create Your Own Census Reports

Manipulating census information can be difficult, but Social Explorer and Queens College CUNY have created a wonderful interactive web site, at www.socialexplorer.com. You choose your region and the characteristics you are interested in, in any of the census years from 2000 back to 1940, and a chart or map will be created for you. This information is useful for paper topics such as immigration (foreign born) or homelessness (poverty) either for the US or a particular state. New census information is being added all the time, and the goal is to provide access to the complete historical census information for the United States.
