Have you ever thought about an idea or heard something in the news that made you wonder how many people it would affect? Or maybe you’re thinking about moving and would like to know a little bit about the people in your new home in comparison to where you live now.
Census.gov has lots of great information, but it takes a few clicks to find anything digestible. That’s where ZIPskinny steps in. On the first screen it asks for a ZIP code. After that you’ll see a screen with lots of demographics alongside several graphs. It’s a quick way to get a good feel for the makeup of any ZIP code in the database.
But it gets better. ZIPskinny then allows you to enter multiple ZIP codes and provides a side-by-side analysis of each area’s demographics. For example in my area I found out that single people are much more common than I thought. Keep in mind that this data is from the 2000 census.
Happy data mining!
