New "High Tech" Research Tool Makes 1990 Census Instantly Available for Professional - and Personal - Purposes

Publication Abstract

Frey, William H. 1993. "New "High Tech" Research Tool Makes 1990 Census Instantly Available for Professional - and Personal - Purposes." Applied Demography, 8(2): 4-5.

This brief paper describes the CENSUS EXPLORE PROGRAM, a new research tool now being made available to researchers for beta-testing by CIESIN (Consortium for International Earth Sciene Information Network) along with access to PUMS files from the 1980 and 1980 U.S. Censuses. As an illustration, the author describes how he and a graduate student used this program to answer a query from a woman in Alaska who would like information "regarding the highest concentration of retired single, gentlemen who are well educated and heathy" -- a job which took them only 30 minutes.
