While the majority of the city population is female, some neighborhoods are more enticing to women than others, according to a new study.
Andrew Hill, a cartographer for CartoDB, mapped out the populations of women living throughout the U.S., including those living in New York City. His new dot map, created using data from the 2014 census, offers a visual representation of where all the women in the U.S. live, according to The Atlantic's CityLab.
The color of the dots is based on the percentage of women within the total population of the area. Each dot represents 1,000 women.
A dark pink dot means more than 52 percent of the population is female, while a white dot means women represent 49 percent or less of that neighborhood's population. All the other colors fall on the gradient between those two percentages. The regions of the map that are black represent areas with few women residents, or a low population of people in general.
Here are some of the interesting takeaways, focusing just on New York City (See the map below):
► Regions With Large Populations of Women
• In Manhattan, around Upper West Side and Upper East Side
• In the northern region of Brooklyn, around Park Slope, Crown Heights, Brownsville, East New York, Canarsie, and East Flatbush
► Regions With Smaller Populations of Women
• In Queens, around Jackson Heights and Woodside
• In the southern part of Brooklyn, around Sunset Park and Borough Park
