Maps continue to be an important component in the U.S. Census Bureau’s data dissemination activities. These maps are valuable tools that assist users in understanding and interpreting the large volume of data that the Census Bureau publishes. Data products released by the Census Bureau often include a variety of reference and thematic maps. These products include both printed reports and online or digital data releases. While many of these products include U.S. data collected by the Census Bureau, the agency also creates a variety of international products, often using data from other national statistical agencies. This presentation will highlight some of the Census Bureau’s recent thematic map products for both U.S. and international data. It will include stand-alone maps, as well as maps that have been prepared as part of larger data products. The presentation will also cover some of the Census Bureau’s online interactive mapping tools.
