Using the ACS: Density Maps Plan your next move

People who walk or bike to work

Self-powered commuters

If you squint, you can see the expected pinpricks of density in cities like Seattle and Denver. But Alaska?! I would guess that in those regions workers just live very close to their jobs. More research is required.


People with total yearly income over $100,000

Great places to start your dog manicure business

Unsurprisingly, people with higher incomes are more commonly found in your standard large American cities, particularly in a big stripe along the northeastern megalopolis.


People who work more than 40 hours per week

Getting the job done, paying the bills

The midwest seems to be a hardworking region, along with Alaska. Contrast this map with the high income map above for an interesting hypothesis regarding the dependence of income on hours worked.


People who work in bowling alleys

This is the important stuff

If you want to live around hardworking bowlers, move to the midwest, my friend.
