Many citation styles do not give exact guidance for citing data from the US Census. The most important things to do when citing your data are to include the elements below and to be consistent:
- Who- Author of content
- When- Date content was published
- What- Title of content
- Where- Publication information. This can be the website you got it from or the journal or book's publication information.
Use the APA 7th edition research guide to get citation formatting guidelines for datasets and websites.
