The U.S. Census Department offers this site which provides a wide variety of statistical and factual information on American population, economics, education, and other statistics on this new site redesigned since the 2010 census. There are several ways to search for different sets of data. There are even interactive maps of census data. (See Geographies and click on the Maps tab.) It's a great research tool, especially if you know what you're looking for. Parts of this site are updated through the present, while others date back to 2000.

tag(s): census (19), demographics (19), population (60)

In the Classroom

Explore the site together as a class on projector or interactive whiteboard before asking student groups to create a set of compare/contrast questions for their peers to solve on this site. Also be sure to include this site on your teacher web page for students to access both in and outside of class for further research. While students are learning about various states throughout the United States, have cooperative learning groups use this tool to compare and learn more about states and form hypotheses about possible reasons for the data they discover.
