"Fans may not list which team they favor on the census, but millions of them do make their preferences public on Facebook. Using aggregated data provided by the company, we were able to create an unprecedented look at the geography of baseball fandom, going down not only to the county level, as Facebook did in a nationwide map it released a few weeks ago, but also to ZIP codes."

Concentrations of Wealth and Poverty

Concentrations of Wealth and Poverty | DidYouCheckFirst | Scoop.it

Greg Russak's insight:

Amazingly clear and detailed "view" of where wealth is concentrated. Drilling into zip codes shows remarkable details without being overwhelming. This is simultaneously revealing and mesmerizing. As I looked at it, I couldn't help wondering how and why it is that the people living in the vast "dark" regions of the South and the Great Plains insist on voting against their own economic self-interests by voting for representatives who insist on the lie of trickle-down economics and persistent austerity as the strategy for prosperity.

This picture shows the cocentrations of poverty and affluence.  The areas hilighted in yellow show the areas which are wealthy and the dark blue showing the poor. This coincides with the amout of pay and the education levels in these countries. Areas such as Boston, New York and Washington show high cocentrations of affluence. These areas also have much higher education systems and more well -paid jobs. Countries which are highlighted in dark blue are countries with lesser education and lesser paid jobs. This shows the  extent at which poverty can affect a country.
