Statistics: Census Factfinder

The Census Bureau has recently uploaded all of the most recent 2004 poverty data on to the Census Factfinder. It's a very nifty tool that lets you type in a state, city, or zip code, and find out all of the basic demographic information about it for 2000 or 2004.

If you dig into the data through the hyperlinks, there's a ton of more detailed data as well. Want to know the total number of houses in your city and the years they were built? Or maybe the home heating costs by utility type? Or perhaps you want to know the average commute length?

Anywho, if you're a dork like me, you might find it interesting or helpful. I've also added a link to it under "Polling and Statistics" on the right hand side of the blog.
