New Database: Social Explorer

As you may recall, last semester we conducted a trial of the Social Explorer database.  Your response was so positive that we added it to our permanent collection.  Social Explorer provides access to historical census data and demographic information. It creates maps and reports to help users visually analyze and understand demography and social change throughout history. The site currently includes the entire US Census history from 1790 to 2000, all annual updates from the American Community Survey, and the Religious Congregations and Membership Study from 1980 to 2000.
