Thanks for mentioning me in this post on the latest data from the American Community Survey, Urban Turf (@UrbanTurf_dc).

The photograph used isn’t actually one I took (I don’t have a helicopter and drones are illegal in Washington, DC) – it is public domain, hosted at the Library of Congress – click through above to get to the record there and see a full size view.

Of interest, here’s what the same circle looked like in 1992, when Washington, DC was a much less walkable, bikeable place

Of note from the data 37% of households are #CarFreeDC, and this year’s data shows a 1% rise in the percentage of people who say they walk to work, which is now at 12.9%

Yesterday, the Census Bureau released the most recent data from the annual American Community Survey. Here’s a selection of some of the most interesting data about housing in the District of Columbia.Source: The Most Interesting DC Housing Data From the American Community Survey
