Exploring the maps further

Above each map accessible from this page is a link that takes you directly to the dynamic version of that map in the Atlas online mapping tool. Opening the map in the tool enables you to zoom in to particular neighborhoods, add or delete indicators, view statistical tables related to the map, add reference layers such as roads or county boundaries, and locate a particular address on the map. 

Additional maps are also available in the Online Mapping Tool and on this page of Demographic Maps.

Next steps in the analysis

The analysis of the maps in the Map Series is intended as a starting point for further conversation. In many cases, additional statistical analysis can help us develop a more complete understanding of the equity implications of the data. Coalition for a Livable Future plans to work with our partner organizations over the upcoming months to develop a series of white papers that offer an in-depth analysis of specific topic areas along with policy recommendations.
