Where People Live

The US Census is starting to release numbers for the 2010 count. Statistics junkies are going to be reported missing soon. HT to Jim Galloway. Pictures are from The Library of Congress.

There is an interactive chart at the New York times that can easily take up your afternoon. Here are a few random observations.

The population of Georgia is 9,687,643. This is an increase of 18.3% over 2000. ( From here on, when you see increase of, you can assume that it is from 2000). In Georgia, we have whites 56%, blacks 30%, hispanics 9% ( an increase of 96%) asians 3% ( an increase of 82%), and multiracial 2%.

There is a dark blue ring, of population growth, in OTP Atlanta. Paulding County grew 74% and Henry County grew 70%. Gwinnett County grew 36%, to 805k people. At any given time, 100k are on I85.

The census tract on the east side of Clairmont Road, including PDK, is 92% hispanic.

The only state to lose population is Michigan, with Puerto Rico also reporting fewer residents. Most of the counties in Mississippi, along the big river, lost population.

There is another dandy map, showing dots for the different population groups. This can be enlarged to a ridiculous size. According to this map, there are 25 hispanics living on the Golf course at the Peachtree Country Club.
