Fun Virginia demographics maps

Where are the sick? Where are the poor? Where have the people been moving? Where are the Whites, African-Americans, Hispanics, and Asians? Find out these and more at a cool site from the Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service at UVa.

There’s a county-by-county map of Virginia, with a simple menu for the various stats you can look at — for example, population growth:

Population growth

You can hover your mouse over each county to get the details, too. In this case, how it ranks (from 1-131) for healthiness (sorry, Petersburg):

The Cooper Center also has a lot more info, including trends — who’s moving where, how populations are changing, and so on. Good stuff for someone who may be looking to sell homes or commercial space in the next decade.
