The U.S. Census Bureau today released redistricting data for the District of Columbia, a city that at first glance remains quite segregated — at least in terms of where people live. These quick maps visualize the percentage of black residents by census tract in 2000 and in 2010.
Now for 2010. Notice that some neighborhoods are becoming more diverse, but not that many. Fewer than I expected, actually, given all I’ve heard about gentrification in D.C., where I moved last week.
(More to come).
