Mapping America

The NY Times has a really cool data visualization project that is built off of Census Bureau sample data available from 2005-2009. You can zoom in on your census tract and see statistics related to:
  • Race And Ethnicity
  • Income
  • Housing and Families
  • Education
For each of these categories there are additional ways to view the data. For example, in the Housing and Families bracket, you can view your tract from the following perspectives: Median Home Value, Change in Median Home Value, Mortgages Consuming 30% of Income, and Same Sex Couples. Curious about your neighbors? Definitely an interesting way to kill a little bit of time.
