Understanding Neighborhood Diversity

Here's a map platform that enables you to look at diversity patterns, at the city level. In the "about" section on this site it says "This application is in support of the article in Urban Studies, “Locating neighborhood diversity in the American Metropolis.” The article analyzes geographic variations in neighborhood racial and ethnic diversity over time in large metropolitan areas in the United States."

Combined with other map platforms,  readers and activist can build an understanding of where poverty and segregation are most concentrated in Chicago and other cities.
