As a follow-up to last week’s look at the current demographics in DC, the Office of Revenue Analysis has posted data showing how the demographics of DC neighborhoods changed between 2002 and 2013, the most recent year for which data are available.
Researcher Ginger Moored used tax data to see how DC’s family types, from childless singles to singles with dependents to married couples with children, have changed over the decade. In general, many of DC’s neighborhoods have more childless singles, while the number of singles with dependents has declined. Those changes were concentrated in areas east of Rock Creek Park, especially in neighborhoods that have seen an influx of singles on the east side of downtown stretching to H Street NE.
In 20001, for example, which encompasses parts of Shaw, LeDroit Park and Bloomingdale among other neighborhoods, the share of childless singles rose 20 percent while the share of singles with dependents dropped 22 percent. But west of Rock Creek, the demographic make-up stayed much the same.
Moored uploaded the data, which is organized by zip code, to Tableau to allow people to look through it themselves. You can check out the data tool here.
