Official Announcement: City Planning Releases New and Improved NYC Census FactFinder
The revamped NYC Census FactFinder, developed in conjunction with the Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications (DoITT), provides users with greater flexibility in searching for the most up-to-date population profiles for specific locations in New York City. Among the wealth of information, NYC Census FactFinder users can now quickly examine 2010 Census data such as how many people rent versus own homes in their community; what the racial and age breakdown is in the blocks surrounding their home; and how many housing units there are in their neighborhood. Users can quickly and simply view 2010 Census profiles for different geographies as well as how it compares to 2000 Census data, a feature that was not previously available in NYC Census FactFinder. Not only has NYC Census FactFinder been updated with 2010 Census data, it has been completely reengineered with the look and feel of NYCityMap, the City’s popular online map portal, and ZoLa, City Planning’s interactive one-stop map tool for land use information.
