Map #1- "NJ Public Schools" http://geocommons.com/maps/63626
This map shows the landfill locations, posted against the income demographics for the state. Also included are posts of each public school. The demographics for income were found at http://nationalatlas.gov/ while the school statistics were found from the site of National Center for Education Statistics, and the landfill points were found from the US Environmental Protection Agency. The eastern and the north western regions of New Jersey have the largest amount of public schools, as well as the lowest income areas, and located landfills.
Map #2- "NJ Jobs" http://geocommons.com/maps/63606
This map shows the amount of variation in annual number of jobs, including both full time and part time employed. The demographics for jobs were found at http://nationalatlas.gov/ while the landfill statistics were found from the US Environmental Protection Agency. Landfills for New Jersey seem to be scattered rather widely across the state, but here shows that the most landfills are located in the median number of jobs.
Map #3- "NJ Jobs Per Capita" http://geocommons.com/maps/61454
The amount of jobs in map #2 shows the number of jobs in a region, but it does not include information about the residents. This map shows the amount of jobs per capita. The demographics for jobs were found at http://nationalatlas.gov/, while the statistics for the landfills were found from the US Environmental Protection Agency. Compared to the map above, this map places the landfills in regions where the jobs per capita are much lower.
Map #4- "NJ Population" http://geocommons.com/maps/69673
This map shows the landfill locations posted against the resident population in each county. The demographics for jobs were found from http://nationalatlas.gov/, and the statistics for landfills were found from the US Environmental Protection Agency. It is interesting that there is not a single landfill located in the lowest population counties. There are most landfills located in north western NJ, where population is higher.
Map #5- "NJ Wage" http://geocommons.com/maps/69677
This map shows the landfill locations for the state of New Jersey against the average wage per job for the county. The demographics for wages were found from http://nationalatlas.gov/, while the landfill statistics were found from the US Environmental Protection Agency. Since the landfills are spread amongst the state there is a large change in wages for counties with landfill locations.
