Visualizing.org and Eyeo are challenging the world's design community to create an interactive portrait of America by visualizing the 2010 census data.
The 2010 Census was the most extensive ever conducted. Approximately 74 percent of households returned their census forms by mail; remaining households were counted by census workers walking neighborhoods throughout the country. National and state population totals from the 2010 Census were released on December 21, 2010. Redistricting data, which include additional state, county and local counts, were released in February and will continue to be released through the beginning of April.
