Or that the 1st District had 336,864 people in its civilian labor force but only 682 in the armed forces? Now you can find answers to all sorts of questions you didn’t know you had at the Census Bureau’s new web tool.

How many Mainers work at home? Glad you asked: 18,736 in the 1st District, 15,619 in the 2nd. How many of us got as far as a four-year degree? 67,738 in the 2nd; 103,867 in the 1st. There’s lots more in the chart. Give it a try below or on the bureau’s website:
