Population Bracketology

Get in on the madness of March and test your knowledge of the U.S. population. The U.S. Census Bureau today released "Population Bracketology," an interactive data visualization allowing you to fill out your own bracket based on comparisons of state and metro area populations. The objective is to pick the larger population between two metro areas or states. Visitors can click on the name in each matchup that they think has the larger population. See how close you can come to a perfect score of 63. At the end, visitors can mouse over their choices to see the actual population estimates or view the data table.

The population statistics used in the matchups come from the 2012 population estimates released last week. Other data visualizations can be viewed in the Census Bureau's online gallery.
