*****Land v Population US County Electoral Map - Land Area vs Population - Engaging Data

A little while ago, I made a map (cartogram) that showed the state by state electoral results from the 2016 Presidential Election by scaling the size of the states based on their electoral votes. The idea for that map was that by portraying a state as Red or Blue, your eye naturally attempts to determine which color has a greater share of the total. On a normal election map of the 2016 Election, Red states dominate, especially because a number of larger, less populated states happen to vote Republican.

That cartogram changed the size of the states so that large states with low population, and thus low electoral votes tended to shrink in size, while smaller states with moderate to larger populations tended to grow in size. Instructions.

America’s shifting center of gravity

It shows how the United States’ demographic center of gravity has shifted westward each census since the first in 1790. The center of population is essentially the point on which a flat, firm map of the United States would be perfectly balanced — somewhat like a seesaw — if all its residents had the same weight. What is this map good for? There are a myriad of ways to map a population, but as useful as maps can be they typically contain a large number of data points which can make interpreting them difficult.

The main strength of a center of population map is its simplicity, just the location of America’s center of population can reveal a good deal about the country.

Where do we live?

An urban area is a built-up area such as a town or city. A rural area is an area of countryside. In the UK this movement of people from countryside to towns and cities happened over the 18th and 19th centuries (1700 - 1800s), because of the Industrial Revolution. Old way of hand-making things on a small scale were replaced by mass production using new technologies, often powered by steam.

. - There were fewer jobs in the countryside - New jobs were created getting the raw materials out of the ground for new industries, particularly coal and iron ore. - New jobs were created in factories - New jobs were created in ports, bringing in (importing) raw materials from the rest of the world and sending out (exporting) manufactured goods.
