Instructions for Finding Demographic Data on the U.S. Census Web Site
The U.S. Census Bureau Web site contains a wealth of demographic data you can obtain information for the entire U.S. by state, county, city and zip code. This information will be used in the discussion for Week 2 and for your paper, Caring for Populations: Assessment and Diagnosis.
To get started, go to the U.S Census Bureau Web site at http://www.census.gov/. The home page shows a list of links along the left side of the page. Go to the area called “Quick Facts” and select your state.
