A way to visualize multidimensional racial demographic data for census tracts. This uses a square root scale instead of a linear scale, and uses 3 colors that are all the same saturation and luminance (in the HCL color space).

Data from bl.ocks.org: New York Census Tracts by Mike Bostock.

Fetching of American Community Survey data inspired by Observable: Racial distribution in NC by Mark McClure.

The variables used are documented in the ACS API Reference.

Color legend from VizHub: Color and Size Legends.
