Abstract DataCounts! is an interactive website designed to help integrate social statistics into the classroom setting. We have several collections of data, including American Community Survey Data from 2004-2006, the 1990 and 2000 censuses, census trend data from 1950-2000, the General Social Survey, and the Current Population Survey. Each collection contains a wide variety of datasets that can be viewed online with WebCHIP. DataCounts! also houses a collection of teaching modules that have been created by teachers across the country to integrate social science data into their classes.
