2010 Census: U.S. Population by County in 3D
Yesterday’s Census maps — in 3D. Color shades represent growth rates. Extrusions represent raw population changes.
A cross post from work:
Like Texas, the nation saw divergent growth patterns, with some counties booming and others losing population. The state also kept pace nationally in the rate of Hispanic population growth. The Texas Hispanic population increased 42 percent in the last decade. The country saw a 43 percent increase.
This map shows population growth among all races in each of the more than 3,141 counties (and county equivalents). Red shades represent counties that lost population, and darker green shades represent those with higher rates of growth.
This map has a similar view, but shows the rate of Hispanic growth:

Now for 2010. Notice that some neighborhoods are becoming more diverse, but not that many. Fewer than I expected, actually, given all I’ve heard about gentrification in D.C., where I moved last week.
(More to come).
