Census Reporter

Whether you are a journalist in search of reliable data or a layperson interested in exploring findings from the U.S. Census and American Community Survey, Census Reporter may be for you. Funded by Knight News Challenge, this resource seeks to "make it easier for journalists to write stories using information from the U.S. Census bureau." The site features two search bars, inviting users to search by location or topic. Topics are also available categorically under the Topics header. Under this header, readers may want to begin on the Getting Started and About the Census pages, which provide a brief overview on the U.S. Census Bureau's "data collection programs." After this introduction, visitors can navigate data on themes such as Families, Income, and Geography. If you do not find a topic you are looking for, the site embeds a feedback link and welcomes ideas for new information to be added. Those looking for further inspiration may want to browse the Examples section near the bottom of the page (under "Using this site"), which demonstrates how the site's data can be turned into useful charts and visuals.
