How to illustrate 5 decades of population changes throughout U.S. cities?

Historical U.S. census tract statistics and boundary data are now freely available online through the National Historical Geographic Information System (NHGIS). As a student of cartography and geography working on the NHGIS project, I focused my doctoral research on illustrating and interpreting long-term tract population trends through a single comprehensive display. This website presents the results.
