The U.S. Census Bureau puts together a wealth of health-related information from its American Community Survey and decennial Census. You can track down ages, types of disabilities, poverty status and even health insurance for most places. While Census data has a well-deserved reputation for complexity that often requires advanced computer skills, you can find useful information with just a few mouse clicks – if you know where to look.
In this tip sheet, veteran reporter Frank Bass shows you – step by step – what you can learn from Census data and how to find that information.
