In America, an estimated 89.3% of households have a computer. This visualization uses data from the American Community Survey which is conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau to show how this differs in each state. To create this visualization, I used the Census Bureau API to pull the 2016 1-Year estimates for the percentage of the households with a computer. Once I had gathered the data, I used Tableau to create this visualization.
I have included the API code I used to pull the data below. You will need a free API key to access the data. You can find out more at the Census Bureau’s Developer Page.
