Housing Affordability, Diversity Index

Demographics Dashboard screenshot

This dashboard provides immediate data for the following average values within the visible map: Population density (people per square mile), median home value, housing affordability index (a comparison of median home prices and median income), and diversity index. As you move the map, these values automatically update.

Clicking the map shows this information for a much more specific area (the census "block group").

 

Created in ArcGIS Dashboard, the data is from 2020 and sourced from Esri, a global mapping leader. Data includes:

  • Population density (people per square mile)
    For reference, New York City's population density is 28,317; Chicago's is 11,900; Oakland's is 7,514; Houston's is 3,163; Anchorage's is 175. To look up the population density for any of the 317 largest US cities, use this interactive chart.

  • Median home value

  • Housing affordability index
    Esri scores housing affordability on an index where 100 represents an area where the median income is sufficient to qualify for a loan on a home valued at the median home price and not be cost-burdened. More Info

  • Diversity index
    Esri's diversity index shows the likelihood that two persons chosen at random from the same area, belong to different race or ethnic groups. More Info

The map itself can be colored (symbolized) to highlight block groups with high/low density, renter occupancy, median home value, house price affordability, and diversity.
