Patchwork Nation is a geographic/demographic breakdown of countecs into twelve different types of communities. It is used to analyze how different communities experience culture, the economy, and politics.
Patchwork Nation was started in 2008 by the Christian Science Monitor to analyze that election. It is now a collaboration between the Jefferson Institute, the Wall Street Journal, NewsHour, WNYC, and local public broadcasting stations.
