Census Data Analysis Wyandotte to Main

The census tracts for the blocks of Armour Boulevard between Wyandotte and Main were 47 and 48 for the 1950 and 2000 censuses but changed to tract 167 in the 2010 data. For the most part, my area did not change as much as other blocks. This portion of Armour has always been made up of working class individuals. The 1950 data shows the area to be predominately white and the 2000 and 2010 data is very similar. While the population of the city as a whole increased, the population on Armour between Wyandotte and Main decreased. This decrease is most likely due to the demolition of many apartment buildings to make space for retail and corporate buildings such as the American Red Cross at Wyandotte and Armour.
