The cultural generation gap mapped - Diversity in America

Mapping the cultural generation gapThis map by the Brookings Institute highlights the "bottom up" demographic change that is occurring in the United States as today's youth are considerably more racially diverse than previous generations. As a result of this demographic structure, the nation faces a "cultural generation gap." Yet these dynamics vary considerably from place to place. The linked interactive feature illustrates this point by mapping the racial composition of different age groups at the county and metropolitan area scales.
