Demographic Data

Using demographic data to understand the environment your center operates within will assist in your planning.  Your state will probably have U.S. Census Bureau demographic information on its official website.  Depending upon its size, your county or city may also have U.S. Census Bureau information broken out by neighborhood on its website.  You may also call your local library’s reference desk for help or check the following websites:
