Intro text (homepage): 
Census data is often one of the most mapped datasets, and there are good reasons for this: not only does it provide insights about our current living conditions, like income, race, age, employment or commuting patterns, but it also serves as the backdrop for many other kinds of data. However, if not handled properly, mapping census data can be difficult and even problematic. Not only do you need to be able to correctly choose the right geographical level of analysis and download the right datasets, but you also need to be able to join these tables to existing shapefiles and symbolize them correctly. This tutorial will guide you through the process of downloading both the geographical boundaries and the census data, bringing them both into qGIS and joining them, and properly symbolizing it.
