This map illustrates the racial diversity of neighborhoods in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2000. Each dot represents 100 people in four race categories: white (non-Hispanic), black (non-Hispanic), Hispanic/Latino, and Asian/Pacific Islander. Thus, the map also depicts population densities throughout the region. While the rural/ suburban areas in the region have largely white populations, many urban/ densely populated areas in the region are racially diverse, with two or more ethnicities living in relatively non-segregated neighborhoods.
Map of the Month
Each month a new map is presented to the Commission to help explain important trends in the Bay Area, across the nation and around the world. These custom-crafted maps are prepared by MTC’s Data & Visualization team.
