A Much More Detailed Demographic Map To Play With

Last month we told you about maps of big cities with dots representing races and ethnicites, so you could see how separated or mixed different groups were.

Now The New York Times has improved on that map, offering the ethnic breakdown of "every city, every block" in America.

Here's Houston.

Keep double-clicking on any particular census tract -- say your own neighborhood -- and you'll zoom in to a block-by-block illustration of its demographics. It can be addicting.

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
