Experian, Equifax and TWR have the map down to the household level, and sell it aggregated at ZIP codes. Experian also has a free super-crappy map view for the scores.

From David:

Agreed! Related, there was a release from Echoing Green with this kind of info:

For example, among our U.S.-based applications, 55 percent of self-identified white applicants applied with funds already raised compared with 44 percent of self-identified black applicants. This disparity applies to the amounts raised as well: 31 percent of white applicants had raised funds over $50,000 compared to 14 percent of black applicants. At the intersection of gender and race, these disparities are amplified.

Another possible type of take that was just in Marketplace:

Minorities increasingly priced out of housing market: A new report from the real estate brokerage firm Redfin shows that in the nation’s 30 largest metro areas, the number of home listings that middle-class families can afford has dropped by 32 percent since 2012, with minority home buyers being the hardest hit. According to the report, 18 percent of new home listings were affordable for median-income Hispanic families, compared to 14 percent for median-income African-Americans. Both rates were down 11 percentage points from five years ago. And as housing costs rise faster than wages, minorities are being priced out of their own neighborhoods, often after decades of investment.
