Datausa.io is one of my new favorite websites and a great tool for VCs doing market research. The tool was created by MIT and Deloitte in an effort to make US public data more accessible, actionable, and visual. Good data on the financial services industry as well.
What's the U.S. county with the most people over 60 years of age? What percentage of people in L.A. have college degrees? What percentage of military veterans in Chicago served in Vietnam? What's the average wage for a construction worker? These are some of the many, many questions you can answer at Data USA, a new and unprecedented effort to make sense of government data. Developed by MIT's Media Lab and consulting firm Deloitte, it visualizes a bewildering amount of information in a way that's more approachable than usual.
