American FactFinder, a data tool from the United States Census Bureau, is a rich source of population, housing, economic and geographic information that can be used to strengthen your grant proposal's statement of need.

For example, in the narrative profile of Tulsa County, you not only get a chart that visually represents educational attainment of residents, but you also get this narrative explanation:
