Google Maps of the 2010 U.S. Census
The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Chicago Tribune, The LA Times and The Texas Tribune have all been busy mapping the 2010 U.S. census.
These newspapers have all provided great map based visualisations of the census on a regional basis. Now, however, the U.S. Census Bureau has released its own Google Map that lets you visualise the data for anywhere in the country.
Or, at least, it eventually will, as the map isn't quite complete yet. The Census Bureau are adding data to the map on a state-by-state basis so you might be one of the unlucky ones whose data hasn't been added yet.
The maps provide details about race and Hispanic groups, age, sex and housing status by census tract, census block group and and census block. Just enter your address into the map to discover if your neighborhood has been added.
