  • Try searching the library catalog with one of the following terms: people, population, demograph*, ethnic*, and census. Limit the search results to Maps on the left-hand side.

  • Many atlases will contain demographic information, but they will likely not be included in search results. Try searching for atlases of your area of interest.
