As their website states, PolicyMap is “All the data you need. All in one place.” In just a few clicks you can access authoritative data from public and private sources to create highly detailed maps. As a user you can find data on demographics, housing, health, education and more in communities across the nation.
PolicyMap is an excellent resource for both students and faculty to use to find data on specific areas. It provides up-to-date demographic data that allows users to become research producers. PolicyMap has many options based on what you want to create including: maps, tables, reports and 3-layer maps. The maps option allows users to create maps based on data for a geographical region for a single variable while the 3-layer maps allows you to find places that match one or up to three variables.
