Mapping Inequality

In a recent post, I lifted some data from the Detroit Free Press that showed just how little the Motor City should care whether the city's emergency manager sells a few pieces of art to cover its bills.

That data was part of the Census Bureau's annual American Community Survey, and today The Atlantic highlighted a group of maps that use the survey's data to paint a revealing picture of America's income inequality.

You can view the maps here.
