Census of Population and Housing: Summary Social-Economic-& Housing Characteristics (all states-U.S. Summary and Puerto Rico) (Series PHC-2)

The census tells us who we are and where we are going as a nation. The census helps our communities determine where to build everything from schools to supermarkets, and from homes to hospitals. It helps the government decide how to distribute funds and assistance to states and localities. It is also used to draw the lines of legislative districts and reapportion the seats each State holds in Congress.

Consumer Search

ConsumerSearch was founded in 1999 with the sole mission of cutting through much of the hype and hyperbole that surrounded the then-new world of internet retail sales. We found that by personally examining all available reviews, and winnowing out the information that was obviously biased or self-serving, we could find the products that truly do what they say they will do. This enables us to recommend the top products in a range of categories for a variety of budgets and lifestyles, thus saving time, money and disappointment for millions of consumers.
