Race Counts Map

Race Counts is an interactive web tool that analyzes the unequal burdens shouldered by different races throughout California. This project looks at seven key quality-of-life measures-economic opportunity, healthcare access, education, housing, democracy, crime and justice, and healthy built environments-and shows how minority communities fare on each. Race Counts maps out these variables in each of California's 58 counties. Click into Monterey County, for example, and you will learn that African American youth who live there are three times more likely to face truancy arrests than their white counterparts.
