The New York Times has released [nytimes.com] the mapping of the Census Bureau's American Community Survey, based on samples from ranging from 2005 to 2009. Unlike the 2010 decennial census, which counts every American, the American Community Survey details characteristics using samples taken from about 1 in 10 Americans between 2005 and 2009. The available maps are divided by specific topics, such as "Race and Ethnicity", "Income", "Housing and Families", "Education", and can be explored until the level of a unique city block. Eventual insights can be saved and shared through the obvious social networks like Twitter or Facebook.
The accompanying news articles focus on the apparent redistribution of races to the suburbs in the US and New York in particular, with commentary on some specific trends and patterns in the US and the New York region.
