The Distribution of Race in the USA
Flowing Data has mapped the most prevalent race in each US county. The Most Common Races map uses data from the 2013 American Community Survey to visualize the distribution of different races across the USA.
I like the option to select and deselect different races on the map. This allows you to make comparisons between different races and to see the distribution of different races across the country. The map highlights the high percentage of Hispanics in the South West and the high percentage of Blacks in the South East. Asians seem to make up a high percentage of the population in California and everywhere seems to have a large percentage of Whites.
