Social Explorer Database Trial

The Library is offering a trial to Social Explorer, an online mapping application for presenting current and historical census data through custom map and reports. Social Explorer contains data from all decennial censuses, the American Community Surveys, two religion surveys, and carbon emissions data for 2002 from the Vulcan Project. Social Explorer was recently featured in an article on the National Science Foundation Web site.

Social Explorer is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate curriculums related to sociology, history, public administration, political science, education, and business, among others.

Please investigate Social Explorer before the trial ends on June 5, 2014, and tell us what you think by completing the Database Trial Evaluation form. Please direct any questions to David Nelson, Head, Collection Development and Management.
