Datausa: Data Visualized

Vast troves of data, pulled together by government, are open to the public, digitized and posted to the web. Demographics, traffic patterns, public health, family incomes, Vote! energy consumption, and a lot more is available. Available, but not necessarily easy to access or understand.
