On Wednesday March 9, 2011 at 2:00pm the U.S. Census Bureau released the Connecticut redistricting data. This dataset includes total population, race, ethnicity, voting age (18+), and housing occupancy data for multiple geographies in Connecticut. To allow for quick comparisons between 2000 and 2010, the Connecticut State Data Center has created a dual map viewer which enables users to search for a town, click on the town, and view data from 2000 and 2010 side by side. Check out this Connecticut census data viewer!
