DATA GEMS: Measuring Race and Ethnicity Across the Decades from 1790 to 2010


[MUSIC] Hello, my name is Jeanna Bunn-Hector and the
quick census tip for today provides access into a rich history source. This interactive visualization tool is a quite
colorful tool, that tells a story and sneaks a peek back into time. This resource is not only educational, but
one that I found to be exciting to navigate. The name of this data tool is Measuring Race
and Ethnicity Across the Decades from 1790 Thorough 2010. We’re going to navigate to the race and ethnicity
table, first by selecting topics, and then population, and after that opens up, we’ll
scroll over to race. And then we want to tap into the library,
the visualizations specifically. And in order to pull up the table we’re looking
for, we want to select all, and the very first table that populates is the race and ethnicity
table. And as I pointed out from 1790
all the way through 2010, is a rich source of data to tap into. We’re showing specifically my mention of the
mulatto and they’re showing in 1850 is when that category was first put into place. But even scrolling along their timeline, you
can also see the different names captured for the race from Negro to Negro Black, and
even further down to African American. And again, not just to focus on black or mulatto,
but we can see across the timelines for all races. And again, this is very rich data as you scroll
over each, you know, information populates that speaks to the specific race and that
timeline. I hope you found this tutorial useful. For additional videos subscribe to our YouTube
