In January 2011, the U.S. Census Bureau plans to launch a revamped version of its data delivery tool, American FactFinder. The new American FactFinder offers a new look, new tools and easier access to Census Bureau information. In order to prepare users for this change, the Census Bureau has prepared an online video, the American FactFinder Virtual Tour, and a tutorial to demonstrate the enhanced features and functions of the new and improved FactFinder.
It is important for users to become familiar with accessing data from the new FactFinder in time for the release of 2010 Census data starting next year. The American FactFinder will be the primary tool used to access all 2010 Census data. It will also give users access to other key data sets such as the American Community Survey, economic census and other programs.
In addition to the video, a tutorial, “American FactFinder Quick Start,” specifically demonstrates how to conduct a basic text search, view search results and select a data product to view. Additional tutorials on other new FactFinder functions, such as creating a map, transposing rows and columns, and performing topic searches, will be available in the near future.
To access the video and tutorial, visit American FactFinder at <http://factfinder2.census.gov/>.
