American FactFinder (U.S. Census)

American Factfnder is the gateway to  the Decennial Census, the American CommunitySurvey, the Census’  Population Estimates Program, the Economic Census, and Annual Economic Surveys. Factfinder is a massive database that is searchable by topic, geography, population group, and industry and year. Users can modify data tables to focus on specific geographies or data elements. It also has mapping features that enable users to map data.

All these features mean that you likely will need some help navigating the site.  There is help. the Census provides several tutorials that demonstrate step-by-step how to use the basic functions, modify tables, and create maps.  A video tour of American FactFinder is also available.
