not they live in or near a big city.
The Neighbors: Income

neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood
may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand
the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the

another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the
conditions and character of a neighborhood.
