An atlas with 72 color maps illustrating demographic patterns and changes in population between 1990 and 2000 was released today by the Commerce Department's Census Bureau.
Mapping Census 2000: The Geography of U.S. Diversity uses data from the Census 2000 redistricting (Public Law 94-171) summary files released last March. Topics covered include total population, race and ethnicity and population under age 18.
The atlas presents pairs of maps showing a Census 2000 population distribution map on one page and one with corresponding 1990-to-2000 change-in-population data on the other. Each map features county-level detail for the 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
Mapping Census 2000 is available on the Census Bureau's Internet site <http://www.census.gov/main/www/cen2000.html>. For a print version of this product, contact the Census Bureau's Customer Services Center on 301-763-4636.
