An interactive map of every neighborhood's median income in the United States

I stumbled upon this map at www.RichBlocksPoorBlocks.com

Apparently, you just put in your address, state, and the map zooms to your location (or whatever one you typed in) and you can click to see your area's income level.

Really useful for finding out which part of the city is very poor, and which part is very rich.

Anyone else find this useful?

Also, feel free to post a screenshot of your neighborhood.

Here's mine: a quaint place in Vermont:

What does yours look like?

3. My state has one speck of red. Most locations are higher income. I am a little surprised by this

outcome. I expected to see more red in some regions.

5. Looking at my little part of the world

I find the results to be way off the mark. I know my neighbors and what they do for a living. Most of the numbers are about twice what most earn.
There are a few high earners that skew the balance but most of us are pretty hard up.

6. The area we live in has an RGB value of 196, 165, 113

There is no correlating RGB value in their index, so I'm at a loss. But i know it's not an affluent area.

9. You can see where I currently live & where I was born & raised in same screenshot

If you look to the left you will see '2nd Ave', I live right underneath the 'e' in 2nd Ave. And if you look in the middle you will see Williamsburg, not East Williamsburg, I was born & raised above the 'b' in Williamsburg.

Interesting find!

10. Is the scale bar your creation?

When I click on a census tract, I get some text listing a median value and range.

21. 142,705 +/-8,246 in a state middle class range of 41K to 52K

I'm surprised at the +/- part. I know pleny of people in our census tract that won't make 142K in two years and I know others that would consider that lunch money.

You know, I just noticed how segregated many cities in America are. I wonder if it is similar in Europe?
