Demographic, economic census data for COVID-19 response

To make it easier for governments, businesses and communities to find data to inform their COVID-19 responses, the Census Bureau has launched a resource page that highlights demographic and economic information.

The data hub provides dashboards users can browse to find population and business data for the nation, states and counties along with a demographic and economic analysis feature that shows selected statistics on income levels, health insurance coverage and areas with large numbers of seniors and social vulnerability – or communities with high poverty, low percentage of vehicle access or crowded households -- in an interactive map.

Census has also highlighted some datasets that show key indicators down to the census tract level, including annual payroll per employee, households below the poverty level and those earning less than $75,000 along with population count by sex and age group. Users can download data on demographics, housing, social, economic, business characteristics in map and Excel formats.

The data hub, which was built in collaboration with Esri, also links to other data tools from the Census Bureau and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
