What do dots represent?

Dots on the map are distributed approximately where families with young children live. Each dot represents about 4 families. Actual family locations are not shown, only simulated locations. But dots are densely packed in areas where many families with young children live and sparse in areas where few live.  Each dot’s color signifies the child care access level of families in that neighborhood, from high (dark blue) to low (dark red), on the chosen access variable.
