I teach university-level sociology and statistics, and use this blog to post data notes about social inequalities and social movements (and sometimes photos of renovations I do on my Victorian house in downtown Indianapolis)

Unemployment in Marion County (Indianapolis) by Census Tract, 2012
Data note: The map below represents a picture of unemployment in Indiana using the American Community Survey data (5-yr estimate, 2012)
While the label shows the representations of gradations of census tracts with lower to higher rates of unemployment, what one can see from the labels is that many areas have unemployment rates above 30%, and several have rates above 35%.
