Patchwork Nation

Here's a real interesting reporting project at the Lehrer News Hour on pbs.org. It's called Patchwork Nation and it looks at communities over time, by merging and overlaying all kinds of demographic information.

Patchwork Nation breaks down communities into twelve profiles, from "boom towns" to "tractor country," based on age, incomes, employment and voting records, among other bits of data.

Where does your hometown fit?
