Want to know more about your state, your community or even your neighborhood?
There's an app for that — or more accurately, a new Census Bureau website that allows users to drill down into a wide variety of data from past decennial censuses, as well as more frequent, updated information from the American Community Survey.
It's called Census Explorer and is, the Census Bureau says, particularly useful in showing demographic and economic change over time, since data from past censuses are included, down to the level of individual census tracts, which are fundamentally neighborhoods.
