Title:The diversity of Chicago Latinx populations
Author(s):Guhlincozzi, Aida
Subject(s):Diversity

Latinx populations
Abstract:

U.S. Census data and demographic maps of cities typically group all people of the Latinx ethnicity into one category. In cities like Chicago, with high levels of segregation across all racial and ethnic groups, Latinx neighborhoods may be viewed as all one type of place. This assumption may lead to beliefs that there is a monoculture of this type of place, and assumptions on how this affects behavior, needs, and interests. Without considering the origin and differences between these groups, it is impossible to see the diversity within them. This visualization displays Latinx populations appearing clustered in Chicago. However, they are clustered into smaller groups based on different countries and cities of origin. Some groups are not heavily clustered at all. This visualization also provides text regarding the changing language surrounding how Latinx people identify themselves and from what regions of the world they identify from.
