Quick and dirty Census maps

Go to the American Factfinder website.

Click on “Topics” and choose people | age group | older population for this example, and then close the topics window.

Click on “Geographies” and choose an area. Choose Census Tracts | Florida | Palm Beach County for this example, and then “All Census Tracts within Palm Beach County” and click on “Add to your selections.” Close the geographies window.

Choose the table RELATIONSHIP BY HOUSEHOLD TYPE (INCLUDING LIVING ALONE) FOR THE POPULATION 65 YEARS AND OVER.

Click on “Create a Map” (one of the “Actions” in blue text, above the table).

To map males older than 65 living alone, click on the number 112 in the estimate column, down there near the bottom (or alternately, the 333 for females living alone).

Click on “Show Map” and wait a few moments for the map to load and you get a color-coded map showing which Census tracts have the most older men living alone in PBC.
