This year, the most comprehensive racial segregation maps ever created was released by Dustin Cable at University of Virginia’s Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service.
The map accounts for all 308,745,538 individuals who took part in the 2010 U.S. Census, appointing one dot per person on a map of the United States and breaking each dot down by ethnic heritage, creating a 7 GB of work of data and art, according to recent coverage in Wired.
"It isn’t the first map to show the country’s ethnic distribution, nor is it the first to show every single citizen, but it is the first to do both, making it the most comprehensive map of race in America ever created," said author Kyle Vanhemert.
The map shows a lot of stark contrasts to living areas based on race across the country, and it's very enlightening. In the photo above, you can see what Stamford's racial breakdown looks like, which turns out is quite diverse.
It's also interesting to see where people have settled, and how racial heritage ties into an area's settlement rates. The map presents some interesting data on how and where people choose to settle down, and with whom.
