The U.S. Census Bureau has created an interactive data visualization illustrating the results from its American Community Survey on a county-by-county level using data collected between 2012 and 2016. The visualization allows users to view different characteristics of each county, including average household size, median age, and the unemployment rate, and compare this data against state and national averages.
