Explore DC’s Changing Demographics With New Online Feature

Our Changing City focuses on the District from 2000 to 2010.

The Urban Institute launched a cool online interactive feature Wednesday called Our Changing City. The study takes a close look at demographic changes by ward. There’s a wealth of information to wade through—from population shifts by race and age to snapshots of Columbia Heights and Mount Pleasant, which the authors say have seen some of the most dramatic change.

The study dovetails nicely with this article that ran in yesterday’s New York Times, which examines skyrocketing rents through the lens of a 54-year-old woman struggling to afford her apartment in Columbia Heights.

Real estate and numbers nerds take note: this is the first of several chapters in the study. In the months ahead, they’ll drill down on housing, crime, and education.
