Abstract or Description

This map shows the median year that housing structures were built across census tracts in Maine. This gives a rough idea of which tracts have experienced more recent development. The map also relates median year structures built to the locations of cities, urban areas, and highways in Maine. Urban areas are defined as densely settled territories containing at least 2,500 people according to 2000 census data.

Source Data Note

The data for median year were obtained from the US American Community Survey 2006-2010. The data for highways were obtained from the Maine Office of GIS, and the data for cities and urban areas were obtained from ESRI.
