New Data Visualization Maps Degree Completion in the U.S.

Kyle Walker, director of urban studies at Texas Christian University, has created a new data visualization, “Educational Attainment in America,” which takes stats from the National Historic Geographic Information System to map out degree completion data from the U.S. Census.  
 
Walker's map shows sharp contrast between educational attainment in urban areas (where blue dots illustrate groups of people with graduate degrees) and more rural areas (showing more red dots indicating a higher concentration of people with less than a high school degree). Still, zoom in and find that even in dense cites like New York there are striking differences between even close neighborhoods.
