INTRODUCING DEMOGRAPHIC H/T

The Next America will feature examples of series, videos, interactives, and other online elements that help shape our understanding of changing demographics.

We welcome suggestions on projects worth examining more closely, providing a tip of the hat (or in Internet parlance h/t) to standout sites, galleries, stories or more.

In a political season where voter registration is an issue, the Center for American Progress has analyzed data through its Progress 2050 initiative to show the shift in the number of eligible voters of color in the past decade. Its interactive map highlights states with the largest percentages of people of color who are eligible to vote. It's worth exploring.

Click on graphic to go to interactive map.

Between 2000 and 2010, minority populations grew by 10.6 percent in Nevada, where 38.9 percent of eligible voters are of color. In Florida, 34.5 percent of eligible voters are minorities.

 

In addition, the map tracks the number of legal permanent residents waiting to become naturalized—these folks are just one step away from voting eligibility and number in the hundreds of thousands for some states. New York has as many as 1 million legal residents awaiting naturalization; California has upwards of 2.4 million.
