The 2020 U.S. Census data is finally available. Want to see how your neighborhood changed over the past decade?

Here's an interactive map that allows you to see every census tract in Iowa, its 2010 and 2020 populations and the percentage change between the two.

Each tract ideally represents an area with about 4,000 people, but in those that have had rapid growth, or that have shrunk, the population may vary. The tracts are shaded according to the scale shown below so you can see their relative rate of growth

Iowa's 2020 census data map

To use the map — an exclusive for subscribers — type your county's name in the box above the map and hit enter. The county's outline will be highlighted. Then use the navigation bar on the map to zoom in.

You can adjust the view by moving your cursor, or with your finger if viewing on a phone or tablet. As you zoom down to the local level, you'll see town and city names and a full street map that will help you find your neighborhood. 

Hover over or touch a census tract and the data for it will appear.
