by Five Layers Added to the Map
Four 2011 Census layers and one government layer showing the 113th congressional for Indiana have been added to the map.

Blocks, Block Groups, and Tracts are not legal boundaries, but are considered stable geographic units used for the presentation of decennial census data. These data were all obtained from the Web page of the U.S. Census Bureau (USCB), and were originally published to represent 2011 updates.

The layer showing Children in Poverty, by Indiana school districts for 2011 was also obtained from the Web page of the USCB, with cooperation from the Indiana Business Research Center who provided the tabular data for 2011 "Small Area Income and Poverty Estimates" (SAIPE) program of the USCB.

The 113th Congressional Districts for Indiana were updated from the adopted redistricted boundaries established in 2011. It has been attributed with the latest 2013 election results with representative name, party affiliation, as well as contact information such as Web sites and offices addresses for each representative.
