9. Where one lives *is* addressed by the statement.
"There is also a growing out-of-sight-out-of-mind problem. A study, by Sean Reardon, a sociologist at Stanford, shows that Americans are increasingly living in areas that are either poor or affluent."

There seems to be a concern that people are less likely to live in areas of "mixed" affluence today.
