DataPlace and My Geographies

DataPlace is a one-stop source for housing and demographic data about your community, your region, and the nation. The site provides easy access to data at geographic scales ranging from the neighborhood to the nation. DataPlace lets you assemble your own geographies by using the My Geography tool. This tool lets you aggregate multiple disparate location types - States, Metros, Cities, Counties, Zips, and/or Tracts - so that you can aggregate across statistics on DataPlace for a set of locations you choose. The site also provides a powerful yet simple mapping tool that allows you to produce colorful thematic maps with just a few clicks of the mouse. See
