Data Visualizations

Available at the County Subdivision (town) level, these maps allow users to select one or more geographies by clicking or dragging directly on the map. Use Control+Click to select multiple towns. Scroll over each town to view its characteristics.

Colors are based on absolute number population change since the 2000 Census. The color scheme varies for each map in order to best show the distribution of population change. It is dynamic, meaning that if you select a set of towns, right click and remove or add records, the color scheme will change.

Visualizations may take a minute to load, due to the large amount of data here- please be patient.
