Zipskinny is my new favorite reference tool for finding U.S. census data based on zip codes. Simply type in a zip code and you’ll find detailed information on anything from population, educational achievement and income levels to occupation, age, and race statistics for that particular zip code.
I think this might be an invaluable resource for history and social studies teachers.
