DCP Population FactFinder Relaunched with Updated 2020 Census Data
On November 4, 2021, the Urban Planning Department announced the relaunch of its Population survey, an interactive website that provides demographic information about New York City. The website has been updated with data collected during the 2020 census.
The Population FactFinder allows users to examine city demographics by census blocks, census tracks, neighborhood tabulation areas and, with this new update, community districts. Information regarding the number, age and race of residents and the number of vacant dwellings is available from 2020 Census data. Other socio-economic data available on Population FactFinder comes from the American Community Survey, an ongoing Census Bureau investigation. With Population FactFinder, users can compare census data between 2010 and 2020 to see how populations have changed.
In the new update, each selection of topics and maps has a unique URL, making it easy to share data with others. To use Population FactFinder, click here.
DCP Director Anita Laremont said, “The 2020 Census has shown us that New York City is more populous and more diverse than ever, and DCP’s Population FactFinder makes data about the people who live in our neighborhoods and in the city as a whole, readily available to all of us as we plan for a more equitable city and full recovery.
