Brief Notes on Census 2010 Data

Item of possible interest from Amy West via the AP list...

Hi all,

A reference question that came my way prompted me to write two very brief posts on what you and/or users can expect from Census 2010 data now that the releases have begun.

Shortest possible version: go to the American Community Survey for nearly all socio-economic data and the Census Bureau only does an approximation of Zip Codes and that rarely.

See

Cheers,
Amy
