This page will guide you through the ins and outs of using GeoLytics Planner's Package Plus to navigate, analyze and visualize U.S. Census data. If you are looking for other types of Census data, or if you need more information than is provided here, please check our LibGuide on the US Census or ask a librarian for assistance.
GeoLytics configures U.S. Census data in a way that makes it relatively easy to extract and allows users to create custom generated tables, maps, and GIS layers of census variables. The University of Illinois Library offers access to their browser-based 2000 Planner's Package Plus, which includes the following data sets.
