    In the U.S. Population map, I saw no credit as to the data source. Am I to believe that Esri now conducts the decennial census, not the Census Bureau?

    To lockh310,

    What an annoying piece of dribble. You must “work” for Census Bureau. Try being positive and not petty.

      Citing data sources is standard practice where I make maps, and is still widely taught in schools. Perhaps your cartographic education was different. Where do you practice cartography? And why is work in quotes?
