Mapping California's Politically Vulnerable Communities

Static election maps - 2 LAYER

These static maps show registered voter turnout overlaid with individual economic, educational and health outcome data.  Factors examined include education (low high-school graduation rates, a lack of post-secondary education), economic factors (poverty, high unemployment rate, not having access to a vehicle), health (poor environmental health, high teen birth rates, premature mortality) and civic access (limited English proficiency, percent of eligible voters). 

Detailed static maps cover five key regions: the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento, San Joaquin Valley and the greater Los Angeles, and San Diego areas. For more information on the methodology used in this mapping research, click here.
