Who lives in Brookland, DC?

We’ve been living in a neighborhood called Brookland in northeastern DC for more than a year now. I wanted to better understand who lives here. It’s tempting to make guesses based on what you see around you – but I decided to dig through US census data to get the facts. [Note: The data looks at Zip Code 20017, which doesn’t perfectly match Brookland. See the boundaries of 20017 here.]

  1. As one of the “OTHERS” I have to say I find this Binary bullshit TIRED and OUTDATED. Please pull your mentality out of the 1950s/1960s frame and acknowledge that there are Asian, Latino, and Native Americans living in this society.

  2. estrafalario, I bet that you could dig this information out of the census yourself if you tried hard enough. However, I also bet that the numbers of asians, latinos, and amerindians in Brookland are quite small.

    I live in Brookland and I find this presentation of most recent demographic information about the neighborhood very interesting. Would it be possible to produce a map of the area emcompassed by the 20017 Zip Code? Or, if such a map already exists, could you provide a link to it? Thank you.

  4. thanks for this analysis. would be interesting to see trends from data from the last few census

  5. Thanks for taking the time to put this together.
