Inequality of American Cities

from the site:

"...map charts the geography of wage inequality. It's based on a measure of wage inequality developed by Stolarick that compares the wages of those in lower skill service and manufacturing employment to those higher skill knowledge, professional, and creative jobs across U.S. metros. (For my technically-inclined readers, the measure is based on the Theil Index)."
