2010 data of course so mostly inaccurate for rural areas Graph of age demographics leaves off totals per age group or what appears to be arbitrary data points based on widely dispersed age bands. Fun but for me, it serves no useful reason to keep. Deleted.

Great app with good data Actually the census is running constantly and publishes different types of data and estimates every year. The Decennial Census where they literally count every single person is only every 10 years, the others are samples and surveys of smaller groups all across the country (about 3.5 million people each year) and provide up-to-date and very accurate information as well.

Nothing here No information provided in 2 of the 5 sections for Atlanta - 8th largest city in the USA. Makes no sense.
