This isn’t particularly timely. It could fairly be called “old news.” But my discovery of Eric Fischer’s demographic maps predates the birth of this site. So, I’m running it now.
Here’s what you need to know: Each map is a detailed representation of a given city’s ethnic demography based on data from the 2000 census. One dot equals 25 people. The different colors you see represent different ethnicity. Magenta dots are white people, blue dots are black people, green dots are Asian people, and orange dots are Hispanic people. Gray is “other,” which I assume means these guys. You can click on any of the pictures below to open a much larger version.
There are many more cities at Eric Fischer’s flickr stream linked above, and I encourage anyone who either likes cool maps (me) or who has a hand-wringing, guilt-strapped obsession with race in America (not me) to check them out.
