Census PoP Quiz provides an introduction to the statistics that define our growing, changing nation and is a great way for everyone to learn facts about all 50 states, the District of Columbia and the nation in a fun, relevant way.
With each state challenge completed, users will earn a badge to show their knowledge of various state demographic characteristics. After earning badges from every state, the app will unlock the final U.S. challenge. Throughout the quiz, players can share their badges on social media sites including Facebook and Twitter.
- Challenges that test knowledge of topics such as population, housing and commuting.
- Questions that span locations in all 50 states and the nation’s capital.
- Badges to share with contacts via social media connections.
Census PoP Quiz is the third in a series of Census Bureau mobile apps. The mobile initiative is one example of how the Census Bureau is working to make America’s statistics available anywhere, anytime to everyone and on any device—consistent with the Department of Commerce’s open data priorities and the federal government’s Digital Government Strategy.
Census Bureau Director John Thompson recently recorded a video interview explaining what Census PoP Quiz is, why it’s a great learning tool, and how it differs from our other mobile apps.
“Census PoP Quiz is the culmination of three great mobile apps from the Census Bureau,” Thompson said. “Each one highlights our statistics in a different way, whether it is our economic indicators through America’s Economy or American Community Survey statistics about your ideal community from dwellr. They showcase the variety of information that developers can use to create useful applications for the public.”
