It cost the Census Bureau about $4 billion to create the
mountain of information that's just landed on the nation, and as we
help you make sense of it, we know that there will be times that
you'll need to access raw data to meet your own personal
demographic challenges. When you surf over to www.census.gov,
you'll quickly find that there's so much information, it's easy to
go into overload. But don't panic. Here are the best Web pages to
click, people to call, and publications to check out to make your
data dig that much easier.
