Check out your neighborhood

Love the internets.

Lots of reporting on the findings of the Census Bureau's rolling five-year survey of characteristics of American households. I was struck yesterday when I looked up the 15 or so Arkansas counties — mostly Delta but at least one up in the hills — with a college graduation rate below 10 percent.

But this is mighty nifty stuff for numbers crunchers and demographics lovers. The New York Times has a feature that allows you to look up your own neighborhood — just plug in hour street address — and look at color-coded maps on racial characteristics, education, income and other measures. An excellent time-waster and totally safe for work.
