Colorado/Tennessee Node in the Atlantic City Lab

Researchers Seth E. Spielman, Nicholas T. Nagle from the University of Colorado-Boulder/University of Tennessee node were mentioned in an article by Atlantic City Lab about their research on how to better convey the margin of error in the American Community Survey maps. They, along with other researchers, tested a group of 55 urban planners from Portland, Oregon. They asked the planners to choose the cluster of neighborhoods with the highest poverty level first using a control map, then presenting uncertainty information in a few different ways to see how it might affect which regions the planners chose.
