Census 2000 will provide more data for more people, faster than ever, at
little or no cost. The most sought after information will be available in print
and CD-ROM. More detailed information will be available on the Internet
(http://www.census.gov). The Internet will be the source for both people who
only need an occasional number and those who want custom tabulations.
Much of the information on the Internet will be available free. But a fee will
be charged for custom tabulations.
The American FactFinder, New for Census 2000
Look for the American FactFinder on the Census Bureau’s Internet web site.
The FactFinder gives you instant access to publications and summary data.
It helps you create your own extracts and custom tabulations online. Use the
FactFinder to summarize information for geographic areas and generate
maps online. Use the fact finder to obtain Census 2000 data, as they
become available, as well as 1990 census information and information from
other Census Bureau programs.
Census 2000 Information in Print
A series of reports — one per state — will provide population and housing
characteristics at the state level, as well as population and housing unit
counts for cities, counties, and American Indian and Alaska Native areas.
There also will be a report covering the entire U.S.
And on CD-ROM
Detailed information is available on CD-ROMs. One series will summarize
the information collected from every person and household in the
United States — age, race, and family composition. The information
collected from a sample of households, such as income, education and
occupation, will also be available. In some cases, information will be
provided for areas as small as city blocks.
