History[edit]

U.S. cities, counties, zip codes, and neighborhoods are profiled and compared using data about race, income, education, crime, weather, housing, maps, air pollution, religions and any other information deemed vital. In addition, the website contains detailed information and articles about other features of local interest, such as schools (including their demographics and test scores), hospitals, libraries, tourist attractions, local businesses, restaurant inspection findings, building permits, bridge conditions, hotels, water systems, airports, cell phone towers, property tax assessments, and car accidents. The site allows users to obtain home value estimates and see recent home sales and search for over 14 million businesses.
