Check out our new database, PolicyMap!

PolicyMap is an online GIS mapping tool that gives users access to over 10,000 indicators including census data, crime statistics and city crime rates, health data, IRS migration data, mortgage trends, real estate data, school performance scores, unemployment, and more. It's listed on the Library website > Articles/databases > PolicyMap. Check out the PolicyMap blog for ideas and examples of how to use.

PolicyMap is funded by a 2-year grant from the Department of Community & Economic Development of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, beginning Feb. 2012.

As always, if you have questions please contact your librarian liaison or the Research Center.
