Demographic data helps us better understand the socioeconomic factors within our communities. We can learn more about the population, housing, jobs, poverty, and other features that can impact policy, logistics, and business decisions. Depending on your needs, there are various ways to find, access, and use demographic data using the power of mapping within ArcGIS. But sometimes knowing where to start can feel like a daunting task.
