Description
In keeping with its mandate to prepare and disseminate timely reports on the U.S. population and economy, the Census Bureau has established a sophisticated web site that provides both mapping tools and quick and easy access to a range of data from recent decennial censuses.  The formats available range from complete data sets to succinct summary tables dealing with population, housing, industry, and business.  The data examined can be limited to San Diego County or California.  (The site works better with Microsoft Internet Explorer than with Netscape Navigator).
