A typical Census Bureau visualization is a visual presentation of data made with charts, tables, maps, and other graphic elements. Visualizations are often interactive and contain text for labeling, but do not have the narrative text of infographics. Like infographics, they are effective because they simplify information and make use of the human ability to see patterns and trends.

Most of our visualizations can be shared, embedded, downloaded, and printed. We provide source and methodology information.
