NOTE: This chapter was retired from the EET collection after CIESIN's US-Mexico Demographic Data Viewer became unavailable. The pages are available here for reference.

In this chapter, users describe and compare the geographical and socioeconomic characteristics of selected regions within the United States. They find regions on a map and states within each region. They analyze the data of states and counties for variables that describe population and produce color-coded maps that demonstrate the results of the analyses.

This chapter is part of the Earth Exploration Toolbook. Each chapter provides teachers and/or students with direct practice for using scientific tools to analyze Earth science data. Students should begin on the Case Study page.
