    Very, very cool, Eric. I especially like how certain particular elements stand out (like San Quentin).

    Very interesting. Some of the kids in SF are on very long yellow (and Muni) bus rides in the name of diversifying the schools.

    I wish I had a good source of data for student home locations vs. school locations so that I could plot the travel patterns. Do you know if there is a student directory available somewhere?

    Good to see San Quentin is mostly red. (Though on the ethnicity maps, it was startling in contrast to most of Marin.)

    Are you going to do other cities too, like you did for "Race & Ethnicity" series? I think age visualizations are just as interesting.
  • Eric Fischer PRO 5y

    I was waiting to see if anyone asked... Any particular cities you would like to see?
  • Paul Mison PRO 5y

    I'd be curious to see if there's much difference between the big/old cities and the big/new ones (so NYC, Chicago, perhaps LA vs Miami, Phoenix, Las Vegas, perhaps?)
  • sanjoseguerrero 5y

    I will see what I can obtain from SFUSD. I know that there is a disconnect in several parts of SF between where the kids are and where the SFUSD owns/operates facilities.

    Note how relatively childless San Francisco is compared to other cities. I read somewhere there are more pet dogs than minors in SF.
