Today I discovered Patchwork Nation over at the CSMonitor website. It's a geospatial display of statistics (by US county) that the publication talks about in news articles, and is correlated with demographic characteristics of each county. I'm not sure how accurate the demographic information is, but the stories are pretty compelling. Today's article on the use of payday lending across the US is not particularly surprising, but interesting nevertheless.
