this is a map of the racial breakdown of the LA county census tracts from 1940 through 2000. I'm also in the process of making one for the 2010 census too, FWIW.

one question I do have is: were hispanics not counted before 1970? I doubt they all of a sudden came there between 1960 and 1970. East LA/Boyle Heights has been hispanic for 60+ years.

Do you have any data on non-Mexican Hispanics?  Are there Salvadoran or Peruvian, etc. areas?


nope, its just based off of DRA.

This is the Salvadoran population (2006-2010 ACS)  Thresholds are 0-500, 500-1000, 1000+, I cut off the southern part just a bit to get more of the San Fernando Valley.

So concentrations south of downtown, but little towards the east.   There is a tiny bit toward the SE (Southgate, Cudahy, Huntington Park).  There is also a concentration in Palmdale, with lesser numbers in Santa Clarita and Lancaster.

And here is for the Guatemalan population.  A bit more concentrated, with the dark green area south of downtown bounded by Alvarado and Union, Beverly Blvd and W 6th St.   This doesn't quite overlay the Salvadoran map.  There is relatively speaking, a concentration in Palmdale, but nowhere near the magnitude of the Salvadoran population.  In the San Fernando Valley, it appears to be a bit more of a north-south axis, than an east-west axis.

So the Central Americans are all moving to places where the blacks don't want to live anymore?

okay here's the 2010 map with census tracts. Same color scheme Gold=Hispanic Majority; Ivory/Silk = White Majority, Green = No Majority, Red = Majority Asian, Teal=Majority Black, and Brown=No People living there.

Majority Black Tracts went for Obama (all 08 figures) 96.1-3.9
Majority Hispanic Tracts went for Obama 78.1-21.9
No Majority Tracts went for Obama 67.7-32.3
White Majority Tracts went for Obama 63.6-36.4
Asian Majority Tracts went for Obama 60.3-39.7

here's one question:
does anyone know if certain areas have a predisposition to white flight. It seems that looking at the map, the areas in LA that have experienced white flight are all in the areas you'd expect, but only in hindsight.

What areas did you "expect" white flight to happen?

well the SE cities for starters (relatively old housing stock, proximity to Watts, considered downscale, terrible smog)

It would be great to have a precinct by precinct ethnic change map for the 2000 and 2010 censuses wouldn't it?

ask and you shall receive
