For instance, there is higher number of nonwhite female slavery population with a darker blue. on the contrary, there is a lower number of Nonwhite female slavery population with a shallower blue.

Moreover, I can also click on a county on the map, there is more data about the population based on different ages. Taking Amherst as an example, there were even 26 nonwhite female slaves under 1 year old, 488 at the age of 1 to 4, 474 at the age of 5 to 9, which really surprised me.
