Census Map Shows How Things Have Changed Since 1990

Do you enjoy stats and data? Then you'll like the U.S. Census Bureau's new tool, the Census Explorer; an interactive map that lets you take a look at your state, county or neighborhood to see how it's changed between 1990 and now. You can look at how long the average commute is now for your area, versus how long it used to take to get to work in past years. There is also data on median incomes, population, home ownership rates, education and a lot of other topic areas.

It's pretty cool. Try it out here.
