The national census undertaken every 10 years by the federal government is fine for compiling raw data about the numbers of people living in the United States at a given time. But when government entities want to dig deeper into the numbers, they turn to experts capable of breaking down the data into incredible detail.
That is why the Salt Lake City government led by Mayor Ralph Becker looks to the Bureau of Economic and Business Research, or BEBR, at the University of Utah’s David Eccles School of Business to help burrow down to those minute details. For the second time, the city has contracted with BEBR to create the Salt Lake City Census 2010 Atlas, a massive effort that breaks down the census numbers into a series of analyses, charts and maps that tells far more about the community than simply how many people live in Salt Lake City.
