How the Census data is used:
- Educators can use the data in math and critical thinking lessons. Compare your school data with your county, region or state data. Use graphs to show differences. Why is the data different from year to year? Is weather an issue? Which flowers seem to attract which insects?
- Planners can use the data to see where more pollinator habitat needs to be created.
- Gardeners can use the to see what pollinator plants you want to plant to encourage the visits of different insects.
- Researchers have used the data in pollination economic valuation studies.
- College educators use the journal articles in their classrooms.
