Patchwork Nation – Where do you fit in?

Posted on: September 3, 2008

Today I discovered the Christian Science Monitor’s “Patchwork Nation Project” which breaks down American voters to more than just red and blue states and helps to explain what underpins our voting decisions. By zip code, we can find which community type we live in.

The Patchwork Nation is currently exploring “in real time” the 2008 presidential campaign.

They have

identified 11 places across the US that represent distinct types of voter communities. They are Monied ’Burbs, Minority Central, Evangelical Epicenters, Tractor Country, Campus and Careers, Immigration Nation, Industrial Metropolis, Boom Towns, Service Worker Centers, Emptying Nests, and Military Bastions. For example, Sioux Center, Iowa, typifies Tractor Country.

Based on my zip code and answers to their survey, Patchwork Nation identified me as Industrial Metropolis community type where I have a 90 % match with other people in my community type. My next closest match is Boom Towns with a score of 74% and Emptying Nests with a score of 70%.

Which group is best your match? Take their survey
