Google Enables Public Data Search

If you’re a numbers, geography or news junkie, then you’ll love a new feature released by Google to its main search engine. It enables searches for public data. Type in population followed by a county and you’ll get data for that. Type in unemployment rate followed by a location and, again, you’ll get data for that. Those data types are available for almost any U.S state or county. Google hopes to make more public data available for such easy searching in the future.
