Affordable e-resource demographic data for students

GIS and Demographic Mapping Made Easy! TRF’s announced that it is opening up its online market and demographic data to university students at a discounted rate. Students now have easy, affordable access to the same professional-grade data utilized by thousands of policymakers and professionals across the nation. The electronic resource is intended to aid scholarly research and support class discussions through the application of credible data that was previously scattered across the web or unavailable for students.

University students can utilize TRF’s for quick access to more than 4,000 data indicators related to demographics, real estate markets, education, employment, money and income, crime, energy, and public investments. These indicators are aggregated from a variety of sources including U.S. Census, Claritas, FBI, IRS, the Postal Service, and the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act.

I posted a sample of their map products below.

Free datasets include Census, Postal Service, FBI Crime, Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, County Business Patterns, HUD, HHS and much more.
