If it were based on something hard and fast like stats, it could be a very valid measurement, but I see no potential for it to illustrate North-South variations.

Hmm...

Yellowish-green could mean good/bad mix, but Broward is more socioeconomically segregated than other parts of FL (i.e Orlando, Miami-Dade, especially Tampa, etc). The "good" and "bad" areas tend to be vast and consistent.

That works. It might also work for some of the neighborhoods in downtown Ft Lauderdale, where you can find a bunch of gentrified housing a few blocks from a housing project.

I was footing it around some of the areas in downtown today. It looks like some of those areas may be going back to what they were before all this housing mess began.

Is my assumption correct here that the colors state whether the city is good(green), ok(yellow), and not good(red)? The order it's listed is not part of the ranking right?

Oh wow, compelled, this "rating" is a lot simpler than I thought it would be. I thought you were going to get a map of zipcodes, import it into Paint, and tint each zip a color corresponding to desirability/"niceness." This simpler approach is cool, nonetheless.
