An Extraordinary 'Synthetic' Map of Every Household in America

For reasons of both practicality and privacy, the Census Bureau releases no dataset that contains information on every individual household in America. The demographic data we more often see from sources like the American Community Survey is based on a sample of the U.S. population, and it extrapolates from there to tell us about communities down to the county, census tract or block group level (this smallest geographic unit usually contains several hundred to a few thousand people).
