Research question: What was the proportion of enslaved non-white people to free non-white people in 1790? What different variable could be responsible for the number?
I used the different categories of races along with categories such as enslaved, not enslaved, slave owner, and not. These help show the different races side by side with enslaved and not and slave owner and not. It confirms a lot of what we have learned in class as well as shows some surprising numbers as well. I don’t believe any other graphic would have worked with this data. I tried to have it show county and state as well to get even more details about my research question. I had a hard time getting the data to work with anything other than a bar chart.
