Data are summarized into five categories organised along the colour spectrum, representing the highest education attained: RED-less than high school; ORANGE-high school or equivalent; YELLOW-some college or associate's degree; GREEN-bachelor's degree; and BLUE-graduate degree.

According to Kyle Walker, Assistant Professor of Geography and Director of the Center for Urban Studies at Texas Christian University. "Data are from  the 2011-2015 American Community Survey Table B15003, distributed by NHGIS. Dot locations are approximate and do not represent the locations of individuals. Also, as the ACS is a survey of the US population, its estimates are subject to a margin of error.

I originally saw this article on line at: BoingBoing

I think it is instructive to compare and contrast the visual representation of the data on the two coasts (I have taken screen shots) compared to the center of the continent. Zoom around this map to find your own areas of interest. EdinUS_MapSF

US Election and Geography: The mysterious blue curve explained|@RGS_IBG Geographical


I have no idea why 'Geography ' is resonating with me lately. But when I read items like this, I don't care why, I just delight in how much sense it all makes.‎ 

I love how everything fits together; how world scale events affect change in ways none of us could ever foresee.
This is so cool.
