Take a Ride on the Census Time Machine!


New York Times has a very cool graphic out. Have you ever wondered whether your county represents the (demographic) past, present or future of America. And if it's the past or the future--what year?

This interactive has you covered, no matter which of our 3,143 counties you live in. I have a few questions about the methodology here, but it's great fun to play with and certainly gives you a ballpark-ish sense of whether you are living in America's past of future. 

I offer without comment the chart below which shows the Trump shift by county in 2016. Hmm...
