Income map #graphicmonday

Patrick Cain

I find myself often referencing income maps, in one way or another, when mapping other things (Toronto’s male-victim homicide map, for example, tracks the city’s low-income neighbourhoods fairly precisely).

So it’s helpful, once in a while, to publish the income maps themselves as a reference point, which brings us to this week’s #graphicmonday.

Since Fusion Tables can display FSA-based maps covering the whole country, it’s now possible to publish a hyperlocal map like this on a national scale, in this case a one-stop-shop map of median family income by postal area. The story also has a list of Canada’s ten poorest and ten richest postal code, in some ways surprising, in some ways not.
