GIS Map of Median Income for the Baltimore-Towson MSA

03May, 2012

This map shows Median Household Income by census tract for the Baltimore-Towson Metropolitan Statistical Area.  The data was pulled from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Factfinder site, and joined with Tiger shape files.  Each tract is extruded and color coded based on its Median Household Income.

A sharp contrast can be seen between Baltimore City and its surrounding suburbs.  Significant high-income areas can be seen in Towson/Timonium/Hunt Valley to the north, and Columbia/Clarksville/Ellicott City to the west.
