New Database – Social Explorer

Our main campus library recently acquired Oxford Social Explorer.  Users can easily create interesting maps and tables from U.S. Census data, American Community Survey, Religious Congregations & Membership Survey, and a few other sources.  It’s easy to select a category (such as income, housing, race, etc) and coverage year, then a colorful map is produced.  Depending on the data, your map can be presented as dot density, shaded area, or bubbles overlaid on a map of the United States.  Maps can be saved or exported for use in documents or presentations.
