Kansas City Demographics
The Census Bureau uses the American Community Survey (ACS) to gather a wide variety of detailed population and housing information about the United States. The data are available at the national, state, county, metropolitan, census tract, and census block group level. I use ACS data to help illustrate spatial topics and concepts for my geography students, and give them the opportunity to explore these concepts themselves using a GIS.
These maps represent a handful of the demographic, income, and housing concepts covered in class.
