My friend Zoe at work put me onto a datasource I wasn't familiar with called SMART. It's a Geographical Information System (GIS) supported by the United States Department of Justice, and can generate nifty maps of various socioeconomic data by census tract, city, and other geographical region. I may be working with it to help lay out the location of clusters of homeless families relative to the shelter placement, among other things.
