Welcome to DataCounts!

DataCounts! is an interactive website designed to help integrate social statistics into the classroom setting. We have several collections of data, including American Community Survey Data from 2004-2006, the 1990 and 2000 censuses, census trend data from 1950-2000, the General Social Survey, and the Current Population Survey. Each collection contains a wide variety of datasets that can be viewed online with WebCHIP. DataCounts! also houses a collection of teaching modules that have been created by teachers across the country to integrate social science data into their classes.
