Dependency ratio by county

Same project but this time I am looking at the dependency ratio, so I thought a map showing the way this number is spread across the country was in order. It is something we talk about in the summer demography class so I figured at the least the students would find it a bit interesting. 

I was a bit surprised at the location of some of the pockets of higher dependency ratio, though the pattern of brighter colors in the middle of the country, from Texas to North Dakota, is not surprising in the least.
