Neighborhood Scout contains condition alerts to highlight conditions that are extreme, whether good or bad.
A review of the research says it’s time to get started.
Since census tracts are subdivisions of a county, we did a spatial overlay of the census tracts onto city and town boundaries using a geographic information system to properly assign each census tract to its appropriate city or town.
Then we named each census tract to the local colloquially recognized neighborhood name for that spot (e.g., Boston, MA (Dorchester).
Census tracts usually have 4,000 persons, but can range between 1,500 and 8,000 persons.
