Abstract

The U.S. Census Bureau provides many different datasets on topics such as population, and demographics. The American Community Survey (ACS) is a nationwide survey carried out by the U.S. Census Bureau that measures and describes the social, economic, housing, and demographic characteristics of the U.S. population, including states, regions, counties, and local areas. This task sheet builds on the QGIS: Downloading and Preparing U.S. Census Bureau Data task sheet, and will take you through the steps of joining U.S. Census Bureau data to a shapefile for mapping and displaying data at the county level.
