Times App Maps Nation's Diversity, Income, Education

Posted By on Sun, Nov 25, 2012 at 11:00 AM

Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau, The New York Times created a tool that maps America's diversity.

Organized by census tract, small dots represent different ethnicities charted across American cities and counties to represent populations based on samples from 2005 to 2009.

Other maps available through the tool chart families' income levels, education, home value and more. One chart even shows the number of same-sex couples within that census tract.

The results are estimates, the Times stresses, but reveal the diversity found in the Treasure Valley at a glance. Mapping America: Every City, Every Block, can be found via the Times website.
