The U.S. Census Bureau has published a data resource page designed to support organizational decision making amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

CB said Thursday its new resource page features demographic, business and economic information that federal agencies, commercial firms and local communities may use to address the effects of the crisis.

The data hub’s features also allow users to search across dashboards, leverage statistical content for mapping, access detailed mapping data and navigate through categories of census datasets.

The agency consolidated data from the County Business Patterns program and the American Community Survey into the resource page that also provides access to content from the Centers for Disease Control.

Periodical updates of the page will occur as the Census Bureau gathers user feedback and observes changes related to the pandemic. Environmental Systems Research Institute or Esri helped the agency create the data hub.
