Summary "Patchwork Nation is a reporting project of the Jefferson Institute that aims to explore what is happening in the United States by examining different kinds of communities over time. The effort divides America's 3,141 counties into 12 community types based on certain demographic characteristics, such as income level, racial composition, employment and religion... The interactive map helps break down national data to analyze how it impacts communities. And the graphic visualization tool lets users see data charted and graphed by county, congressional district, or state. It puts the data in the hands of the user, allowing him or her to compare different data sets and explore national data county-by-county."--About page
