Hey everyone,

I am currently working on a GIS project and need to download income and age data for 31 counties in NC and VA. I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out the steps to get the downloaded data up and running in ArcMap?

On the factfinder website it gives comma delimited and presentation ready download options. Which one is best?

After the data is downloaded what do I do next?

I know I have had to do this for a class a while back but I am really drawing a blank.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
