Visualizing Segregation in the United States

Segregation in the U.S.

The Washington Post has created a series of data visualizations demonstrating that the United States is still largely segregated by race, despite the fact that it is becoming increasingly diverse. The newspaper uses data from the U.S. Census to create maps illustrating where different races live and uses color shadings to highlight the diversity of an area. Users can observe the racial makeup and distribution of individual cities, such as Houston, which has rapidly integrated, and Chicago, which still suffers from legacy segregation.

Take a look.
