One of the most innovative and useful parts of the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development's site is the Data Center. In particular, check out the link for Research Tools. This page allows you to compare different counties in Maryland on a range of demographic variables (median income, median age, etc.). In addition, you can also compare Maryland to other states on such variables as the amount of Incorporation Tax. The County Comparative Maps page, as the name implies, presents the data visually--through maps. Other links on the page present the data in tables, which you can then convert to an Excel spreadsheet.
