Hi! The following email was just sent out on the Association for Rural & Small Libraries listserv and I thought many of you would appreciate knowing about it too!

Subject: [ARSL_LISTSERV] FW: Welcome the new American FactFinder

This is the first day of the revised American FactFinder -
http://factfinder2.census.gov/faces/nav/jsf/pages/index.xhtml

Those of you who've had a hard time using the previous version of American FactFinder will like this. When you open the above link you will see two new search tools designed to make searching easy: 1) Community Facts, which lets you find data about a single geography (city, town, county, etc.), and 2) Guided Search, which lets you choose, in this order a) topics,  and/or b) geographies,  and/or c) race/ethnic group for People, Housing, and Business/Industry. For users who've had experience using the previous Factfinder it also has the options of d) search by dataset and e) search by table number or table title.

Users who've had experience using the previous Factfinder will recognize Advanced Search as the previous Factfinder; and advanced users who download data have the option of using Download Options.
