Racial Segregation in Pittsburgh

Behind in my professional reading so I have to admit I got this from Business Insider's story today on some research out of Florida State University looking at racial segregation in US cities. We apparently rank 4th in some new ranking. (update: it's a weird ranking. Pittsburgh is the 4th least segregated, but among the 21 most segregated places. A bit counterintuitive)

Below their map of Pittsburgh showing racial segregation in Pittsburgh.  Note we have our own interactive version of the same data. Also, I made a video of sorts showing the changes in Allegheny County since 1940.

ha. That map is a pale imitation of one the Angry Drunk Bureaucrat once had up, but I can't find it quickly. Maybe someone has a copy?

But indeed, reality is sometimes far more impressionistic than quantitative.
