The US in data

Want to know male/female ratio of a city before you move there? Want to know the income levels, racial composition or educational levels of any part of the US? Well, you can find out all that and more on Social Explorer, a site that maps the demographic data of the US in fascinating detail.

Demographic Map

Go forth and get to know your neighbors through data!
