New Demographic Maps

The New York Times and the U.S. Census Bureau American Community Survey have teamed up to create interactive maps showing American demographics by census tract.  In urban areas, census tracts are about the size of  neighborhoods.  The demographic information includes such attributes as race/ethnicity, income, education, home value and rent prices.  The maps also show how some of  these characteristics have changed over time. Click this link to see Salt Lake County by race and ethnicity.  Then, click "view more maps" to see other demographic characteristics or type in other zip codes to see other places.
