Zip code populations


An interactive visualization of population by zip codes shows the parts of Wichita that are growing.

As part of its American Community Survey program, the United States Census Bureau produces estimates of population in zip codes. I’ve gathered this data for ten years and present it in an interactive visualization.

The nearby example from the visualization shows Wichita and surrounding areas. It uses color to represent the relative change in population over ten years. Zip codes in the center of the city, except for downtown, generally lost population (yellow color). The outskirts mostly gained (blue color).
