U.S. Population Distribution by Race

Today's maps are provided by Devinn Jani, who used 2010 U.S. Census data to give a portrait of racial distribution amongst the United States' population. Note that the scales aren't the same on all of the maps—each map has a different variance of representative data—so be mindful when comparing images as they each represent different statistical ranges.

Asian Population by County

Non-Hispanic White Population by County

Latino Population by County

African-American Population by County

Native American Population by County

You can see larger versions of the maps here. The website of the U.S. Census is, naturally, a good source of population data, so check it out here for more information.

The Afternoon Map is a semi-regular feature in which we post maps and infographics. In the afternoon. Semi-regularly. This one rose to the top of Reddit's MapPorn.
