So, what’s the skinny on your zip code?

Welcome to ZIPskinny, a Web site where you can get Census information by your zip code and compare it to neighboring zip codes around you. It’s really easy to use too! All you have to do is type in your zip code or the zip code you want to know about (I did my mom’s, as well as, my own) and then click on the Get the Skinny button.

The page that loads will have all the Census data for your zip code first and it will then compare it to the neighboring zip codes in your area. The data compared includes: unemployment, marital status, education, income and even poverty.

Beneath that, you’ll find specific statistics for schools in your area, demographics and a map of the area. Underneath that, you will find an even cooler feature! It will have the zip code you typed in and a bunch of blank boxes. Fill in the blank boxes with specific zip codes you’d like to compare to the original query and then click Submit. You can compare up to 20 zip codes at a time!

Once you’ve gotten the skinny on your zip code, you can even put it on your own Web page. To do so, just click the Available Now link above the video at the bottom the page and you’ll be whisked away to the “Create Your ZIPskinny Widget Here” page. You’ll see a bunch of sample charts and a video that shows you how to do it.

I thought this was a really neat site and I just couldn’t wait to share it with all of you. Enjoy!
