Census spreads word on data

Census Bureau officials are aiming to provide the public with the widest

variety ever of census information.

A new bureau brochure highlights new data products generated by Census

2000, including maps, demographic profiles and detailed statistical tables.

The products will become available over the coming year for free through

the bureau's World Wide Web site (www.census.gov) and on CD-ROM or DVD.

It will also be possible to get the information the old-fashioned way — on a printed document.

Even the responses to census questionnaires will be available, but names,

addresses and other information will be removed to protect confidentiality.

"The decennial census yields a wealth of data for which [there are]

virtually unlimited applications," according to the Census Bureau.
