Racial Dot Map
For today’s article, I simply wanted to share a fascinating tool that should have far more viewership: The Racial Dot Map.
The idea is simple. A map of the United States with one dot per person, based on demographic information.
As of right now, it is based off of the 2010 census data. But they are preparing to integrate and use the 2020 census data when it comes out.
This is a handy map and tells a lot about the country, and the states, without needing to say a single word.
You can customize to remove the demographic info or to input state labels. It’s helpful to look at a general overview of the region in question and then move into the localities, to see the distribution change.
Anyway, it’s an excellent tool for seeing the demographic reality of the nation. Give it a look. Below are a few screenshot examples:
