Tales from the Trail

Census info at your fingertips

June 5, 2012

 

Just in time for summer election stories – the Census Bureau released an interactive Web page showing graphs and percentages of adults who voted and registered in every congressional and presidential election between 1996 and 2010.

In addition to graphs showing voting and registration trends over the period, users can get specific data on voting by age, sex, education and race.

Statistics come from the Current Population Survey.
