    Census Releases (Hurrah!)

    INFO VISUALIZATION: There have been a few new releases from the census recently.







    There are plenty of new pretty maps here. This one struck me as especially interesting, simply because it shows the continuing trend of urbanization. (Blue areas have lost people between 2000 and 2003, red areas have gained.) Another interesting map is the distribution of population of the U.S. by state. Slightly over one out of ten Americans is a Californian... yikes.



    Also, check out the election statistics page. It has some interesting info, like that a higher percentage of women vote then men -- I had no idea.



    At or about 70%

    The 2000 presidential election voting rates in the District of Columbia, North Dakota, Wisconsin, Maine and Minnesota, highest in the nation.



    61%

    Percentage of eligible women voters who voted in the 2000 presidential election. That is higher than the 58 percent of men who voted.
