This website was created by Dr. John Logan and a team under his direction, while he was Director of the Lewis Mumford Center at the University at Albany. Dr. Logan continues this research as a faculty associate of the Mumford Center and as Professor of Sociology at Brown University. Further information about his activities can be found at the website of the American Communities Project.
These pages offer information and analyses of how the racial and ethnic
composition of metropolitan areas has shifted in the last ten years, and
how increasing diversity is experienced at the level of local neighborhoods.
By providing complete data in a readily accessible form, we seek to facilitate
analyses of the same information from many perspectives, and to encourage
people to think about the experience of their own metropolitan region
in the context of the national picture.
If you want to view all of our data pages for a specific metropolitan area, click here for our Metro and City Info page. For some kinds of data, you will be able to go from there to see information about a specific city or school district, or for a whole state.
