American FactFinder

The U.S. Census Bureau developed American FactFinder as its primary vehicle for distributing census data. American FactFinder provides access to data from the Decennial Census, the American Community Survey, and the Economic Census, among other surveys. Data can be downloaded in comma-delimited, Microsoft Excel and PDF formats. In addition to downloading data, users can create thematic maps from any table that displays more than one geography of the same type (more than one state, more than one county, etc.). Data available for several geographic levels, from nation to block group.
