GeoSearch2006 - Instructions for accessing Census Tract data

To access Census Tract (CT) data using GeoSearch2006:

  1. Search for a street, street intersection, place or postal code using the 'Search' tab. Find and select a search result to zoom the map to your area of interest.
  2. Choose the 'Layers (1)' tab and select the 'Census Tracts' radio button.

    If the 'Census Tracts' radio button cannot be selected you may need to use the 'Zoom In' button in the left-hand side bar to bring you closer to your area of interest.

    All available census tracts for the location you have selected will be highlighted in yellow. Locations with no available census tracts will be grey.

  3. To identify a census tract of interest choose the 'Identity' button in the left-hand side bar. Click on the map to highlight the census tract.
  4. Choose the 'Additional data' tab. Select the 'Census Tract profiles' link, which will bring you to a data table for that census tract.
