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 federal poverty line, which is extremely low income.

Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden.
