Mapping Change – A New Interactive Tool for Boston
The Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University has released a new Boston Neighborhood Change Interactive Map, which allows visualizations of demographic, social and economic changes in the Boston Metropolitan Statistical Area.
Recommended maps for sampling the power of this mapping tool include maps of racial and ethnic diversity, concentrated poverty, modestly-priced homes, and gentrifying neighborhoods.
It's also possible to customize data sets from the 1990, 2000, and 2010 decennial censuses as well as more recent American Community Surveys to create your own map.
