Denton County’s ethnic distribution

I wish I could take credit for building this map, but I came across it over the weekend, and I figured I would share it.

The map, created by Dustin Cable at University of Virginia’s Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service, is a comprehensive look at the racial makeup of the United States.

It uses data from the 2010 U.S. Census to show the country’s ethnic distribution and every single citizen. Each dot represents one person.

The map has been called “The Best Map Ever Made of America’s Racial Segregation” by a few outlets and critics.

Here I’ve provided a snapshot of various sections of Denton County so that you can see the racial makeup of each area.

For instance, here’s Denton. (Click the images.)

Here’s the Cross Timbers and Lewisville area

Here are the Lakes Cities of Corinth, Lake Dallas, Shady Shores and Hickory Creek.

And here is northern Denton County.
