Charts of the Day: Bicycling, Income, and Ethnicity

These two charts come from the US Census (ACS data), via this nice little post over at Vox. Two hopefully un-surprising facts: poor people are most likely to bike and walk, and per capita, bicycling is most popular with Latinos.

(Of course, Minnesota-specific data would look a lot different than this…)

    I’m curious if you have some specific things in mind when you say Minnesota-specific data would look a lot different?

      Just a suspicion that our ethnic and bicycling demographics are different from the nation as a whole. I’m hesitant to guess what it might be. I’d be curious if anyone has these numbers or a better guess about the differences than I do…
