Harris County Demographics by Region

I've finally gotten around to doing something close to systematically breaking the map of Harris County into different regions in order to see what happens to population counts when looked at by total population, 18+ population and citizen, voting age population. I also show the difference between the 18+ and CVAP populations so you can see some of the weirdness going on with CVAP.

Click the "Read More" link to see the full details ... or just the demographics in your own neighborhood.

Clicking on the map will give you the name of the region. Clicking on the name from the list will give you a breakdown of the different population counts. As a backgrounder, Citizen Voting Age Population (CVAP) is taken from the 2005-09 American Community Survey and is derived form a 2.5% sample of the county. As you can see in the column on the far right, there are plenty of anomalies where certain populations grow after non-citizens are backed out of the 18+ population. That's not the sort of thing you'd expect to see. So expect it to be problematic in its required redistricting usage.
