New Census Tool Helps New Yorkers View Demographic Changes

Posted on August 16, 2012


 New York’s Department of City Planning has made important Census information available on its website for years (although not in a very user-friendly format).  However, a new update to the website will allow New Yorkers to easily search for and view the Big Apple’s demographic information.  MarketMAPS takes a look at the new Census FactFinder website tool and how it can help individuals and businesses. 


NY’s Department of City Planning has improved their online Census tool by leaps and bounds.  The new Census FactFinder comes with a user’s guide, is bigger and more detailed, and will be regularly updated.  Users can search by address, intersection, places of interest, census tract, subway station, or neighborhood, and generate a map of their area.

Not only does the Census FactFinder display current Census data (such as age, income, household size, and more), but it also shows changes in demographic data over time.  This is an invaluable tool for businesses, as it allows them to view trends and make educated predictions for the future.  Take a look at some of New York’s demographic changes below.

The most current, up-to-date Census information helps businesses know the demographic features of their area.  This can help them target a certain population segment for more efficient marketing, and advertising.  MarketMAPS has been providing businesses with the Census maps they need for over 25 years.  We update our maps every month, ensuring that our clients receive the most accurate products.
