Parsing Census Data For Fun and Profit - Tuesday

Some early results from working with census and election data. The first two graphs represent the 2008 presidential election where blue represents Obama and red represents McCain. The second graph represents people over the age of 25 who have had at least some college education.

The third graph is a composite of the two. Light blues and orange represent a high percentage of education and a bias towards one candidate or the other. While dark blues and reds represent relatively low levels of education along with bias towards one candidate or another. I'll provide some numbers showing any actual correlation with educational attainment and voting later on in the week.
