Place and Race
The varying physical, social, and economic environments of California’s communities shape the experiences of those who live and grow up there. The drivers of those differences are built into public systems and infrastructure.
Why view data by place
Residential segregation, due to historic and current policies aimed at creating and maintaining White communities, means those different experiences have become racial disparities. Exploring outcomes for the different groups in your community, and comparing your community with others, allows you to identify key disparities and see who is most impacted.
How is my community doing?
We assign communities to one of four categories based on how well they are doing on racial disparity and outcomes compared to the average. Communities with better than average outcomes and higher than average racial disparity will appear orange on maps, tables, and scatterplots. Communities with lower outcomes and lower disparity will appear yellow. As RACE COUNTS calculations are based on comparison to the average, it is important to note that even when a place is doing better than others, disparities still exist and there is always room to improve outcomes. When a community has larger disparities and worse outcomes than the average it will appear red. Communities with better outcomes and lower disparity will appear purple.
