Mapping US Urban Demographics with Social Explorer

Starting with this short New York Times article about urban poverty - "Sparkling and Blighted, Convention Cities Spotlight Ignored Urban Issues" - we will use Social Explorer to map the current and historical demographic statistics references in the article. This will be followed by a demonstration of mapping inequality and race in Atlanta. Finally, we will conclude with a brief discussion of how Social Explorer's demographic data mapping features can be used for both teaching and research. Make sure to read the article before the workshop.
