American FactFinder
 
02:02
American FactFinder is the US Census Bureau's search engine. Use it to find demographic information on a particular state, county, or neighborhood. Begin by searching for "American Fact Finder" in Google. It is the first result. From there, if you want information about a state, city, town, county, or zip code, enter it in the main search box and click Go. In this example, I'll start with a zip code. I can now get the 2010 Census information, or data from more recent surveys of the area the Census Bureau has done. I can also search American FactFinder for smaller areas than zip codes, for instance the neighborhoods. For that, I'll search by street address. Then, I can choose the type of geography I want -- a city block, a census tract, etc. I'll choose census tract because those approximate the size of neighborhoods. Once I've selected that, I'll choose Topics and select the kind of data I'm interested in. If you have any questions, always feel free to contact the library.
