Being a developer again rocks! Thanks @VisualStudio and #HTML5

Working on a responsive HTML5 web site using Visual Studio, HTML5, Bootstrap, JScript and a few other goodies.  I’m partnering with a friend on a real estate lead capture solution and having a fun time building out the site.  Chrome is really an impressive when you do a Control+Shift+I to bring up the developer tools.  I love that with a simple click, I can go from desktop to iPad to Mobile.Untitled1.png

Population Change by Decade, 1910-2010

image

Decade-to-decade population change by county has varied greatly in the last century in many parts of the United States. For example, in the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s, much of eastern Texas saw population decline (signified on the maps by pink shading), but those areas have seen strong population growth since then (signified by green shading). Much of Appalachia, including parts of West Virginia, has seen cycles of population increase and decrease as well.

In the lower-right corner, you can play an animated series of these maps to see how the patterns change over time.

Net Migration Between California and Other States: 1955-1960 and 1995-2000

image

This graphic shows the 10 largest state-to-state migration flows in and out of California for the period 1955-1960 compared to that of 1995-2000. In the late 1950s, the largest flows involving California were all inflows to the state, generally from states in the Midwest or Northeast. This pattern contrasted with the flows in the late 1990s, where nearly all of the largest migration streams involving California represented out-migration to other states.

 

The American Community Survey now provides data annually on state-to-state 1-year migration flows. Next month, statistics will also be available for every county in the US that show the number of people who moved into or out of the county and which counties they moved to and from. The Census Flows Mapper will also be released at that time to all users to easily view and map the county migration patterns of their choice.
