Population by Race and Block, 2010 Census

Posted on Thursday, March 17, 2011 at 02:35 pm ET

Here's a look at population by race for each block in Allegheny County from the 2010 Census. The map below uses a "dot density" technique, which randomly draws a point for each person within the boundary of the block in which they lived last April. The points are color-coded by the race of the person as reported in the 2010 Census. The legend appears beneath the map.

Be sure not to miss yesterday's post on block-level vacancy (below). Check back soon, as we plan to explore more block-level data from the 2010 Census in the coming days.

The +/- controls in the upper-left corner of the map allow you to zoom in and out.

Dragging the map window will allow you to move the view to a different area.

Clicking on the map will provide you with statistics on an individual block.

Note: the map is set to draw the data by race if you're zoomed-in at a neighborhood scale. If you don't see data, just use the + sign to zoom in a bit closer.

Please help me configure this map with an overlay of adults currently on probation or parole using PA DOJ data.

The Hilltop Alliance is finding all the 2010 information very helpful and timely. Looking forward to more to come.
