This page displays four maps that I created after graduate school. The maps on this page were made with GIS. The National Atlas provided map boundary data for United States and Illinois maps.
United States
Population Change
This map shows population changes by state from 2000 to 2009 and there was a population increase from each of the 48 states. Population changes are shown as percentages and calculated with numerical data from the U.S. Census Bureau. 16 states had small population increases (less than 4.0 percent), while 6 had large increases (more than 18.0). Parts of the northeastern and midwestern U.S. had small increases, and parts of the western U.S. had large increases.

Labor Force Change
This map of the conterminous United States shows labor force changes from 2000 to 2009. Labor force changes are shown as percentages and calculated with numerical data from the U.S. Census Bureau. 45 states had labor force increases from 0.04 to 43.62 percent, while the 3 other states—Michigan, West Virginia, and Alabama—had decreases (below 0.00 percent).

Illinois
Percentage of Population Black
This map shows the percentages of the population black for counties in Illinois in 2010. The U.S. Census Bureau provided the percentages. Illinois had 102 counties. There are fourteen counties in Illinois with percentages at or above 11.2 and there are eighty-eight with percentages at or below 9.7. Calhoun County and Jasper County had the lowest percentages at 0.1 out of all the counties, and Alexander County had the highest at 35.4. Calhoun, Jasper, and Alexander are from the southern half of Illinois.
