From May 3 until May 27, 2016, we have trial access to PolicyMap, a US national data mapping tool and analytics platform with which to perform demographic and socioeconomic analysis, from a neighborhood census block group up to a national level, as well as create custom regions.
PolicyMap data can be presented as maps, tables, charts and pre-built reports that can be incorporated into papers, presentations, blogs and websites. Users can also download data from PolicyMap for use in other tools or upload their own address-based data for use in PolicyMap.
You can see the full Policy Map data listing on our trial site by going to http://tamu.policymap.com/our-data.html
