Federal News Radio: Census Bureau’s new data site offering a ‘Google-type’ approach for users

Federal News Radio: Census Bureau’s new data site offering a ‘Google-type’ approach for users. “What if there was a Google search bar for Census data? The Census Bureau’s Chief Data Officer Zach Whitman and his team are making that a reality for data geeks and curious citizens alike. Speaking at the June 12-14 Amazon Web Services Public Sector Summit in Washington, D.C., Whitman said data.census.gov is replacing the bureau’s American FactFinder ‘in both form and function’ for a majority of users looking to do basic things like extract data and visualize maps.”
