CENSUS FUN….Did you know that

CENSUS FUN….Did you know that the 2000 census results are online and available at the neighborhood level? It turns out that I live in census tract 525.14, which includes a grand total of 46 houses and 122 people. Of these:

  • 41 are owned 5 are rented.

  • Of the population, 92 are white, 28 are Asian, 2 are “mixed,” and of these 6 are Hispanic.

  • There is one person in my neighborhood over 85 years old.

OK, it wasn’t all that interesting. But if you want to check out this information for your city, school district, or neighborhood ? or just noodle around with the census data ? click here.
