What Are The Various Types Of Maps?
Ethnic Density Map Ethnic Density Maps show the relative density of a specific ethnic group or, in the case of Diversity Density Maps, of a constructed group identified as "non-white or Latino".

The green areas on the maps are where the density of the group is greater than the California average. The red areas are where it is lower than the State average.

The information is shown by U. S. Census Tract (data from Census 2000).
Footprint Map Ethnic Footprint Maps show areas where the density of "non-white or Latino" population is greater than 50% (the aprox. state average for this population in the 2000 Census).

The information is shown by U. S. Census Tract (data from Census 2000).
Cluster Map Ethnic Cluster Maps show the areas where the density of a specific ethnic group is greater than 30% (20% for the Filipino clusters). These are areas which should be ripe for the development of ethnic ministries.

The information is shown by U. S. Census Tract (data from Census 2000).
Primary Ethnic Group Primary Ethnic Group Maps show the predominant ethnic group in each Census Tract in the area shown by the map. The ethnic groups are color coded (Asian groups also use cross-hatching codes). Note that White Non-Latinos are not indicated as "predominant" in Census Tracts with 50% or more "Diversity" propulation. We do this to keep from swamping the other ethnic groups.
