Census Bureau reveals new website features

The Census Bureau has just added some interesting features to their website that the data-enamored might enjoy.

  • Economic dashboard with key indicators generated by the Census Bureau prominently displayed. 
  • A new interactive map that shows in-depth business and demographic information for the nation, states and counties.If you are interested in Utah-specific data, this is the most usable tool. I've included a screen-shot in the post of the county business pattern information that is currently available on the map.
  •  A “Stat of the Day” highlighting Census Bureau statistics. 
  • Navigation has also been improved by grouping links into themes. 

If you have a few spare minutes, you might want to check out the site's new features:
