1 Comment on Visual Representation of Census Statistics
We try to pass along great infographics, but we also get excited about fresh and interesting approaches to cartography. And from time to time in conducting national-scale quantitative research studies, we have to dig deep into Census statistics from 2000.
Eric Fischer’s recently-posted Flickr photoset relies on 2000 Census stats and OpenStreetMap data, depicting racial and ethnic divides in a few dozen major American cities. His work was inspired by Bill Rankin’s map of Chicago’s racial and ethnic divides. The visualizations for Chicago, Atlanta, San Francisco, and Houston are particularly striking, and most maps feature some explanatory notes through use of mouse-overs.
This is great work, and I hope to one day see an update based on 2010 Census data to see, among other things, the changes in concentration of Hispanic-Americans, the differences in post-Katrina New Orleans, and the evolving makeups of Southeastern cities. This is fascinating data and imagery that really makes one think about what a difference a decade makes.
