3,726 population in 0.1 sq mi, or 28,380 ppsm
Median age 36
34% Asian; 25% white; 24% hispanic; 11% black; 5% two or more; 1% other
$55,542 mhhi; 12% below poverty line; 7% over $200k HHI
52% male
2.5 persons per household
36 min avg commute time, 56% use transit, 9% walk, 22% drive
88% live in multi family dwellings
94% units occupied, 79% are renter occupied units, 21% owner occupied
$365,600 is the median value of owner occupied units
45% have a bachelors degree or higher
49% foreign born, 53% have a language other than English spoken at home
3% are veterans

This tells me the neighborhood is changing. When the home values are so high above median HHI, it suggests wealthier people are moving in. Census gathers data on rents too, and it would be interesting to see the trend there.

My original hometown by birth---Del Paso Heights, North Sacramento:

Where I started and went through half of elementary school--Exposition Park, South Central Los Angeles:

My claimed hometown---Woodbridge, Virginia (one of these urban, high density suburbs):
https://censusreporter.org/profiles/...ce-william-va/

Where I finished high school---Prince George, Virginia:

I also briefly spent a year apiece in Little Rock and Memphis as an adolescent, but the majority of my upbringing was in California and Virginia, with my formative, "coming-of-age" years spent in Virginia. I'm going to try to map out some of my adult homes later!

Census Tract 12.__

Pop. 4200 in .1 sq miles, density 33k ppl per sq/mi (my tract includes a portion of the river and subsequent trail and train tracks, zipcode is 36k per sq mile)
Median age: 35
84% white, 6% asian, 4% Hispanic, 3% two+, 1% black, 1% native
1.9 people per household
$109k mhhi, 5.9% poverty
$562k average unit value
91.3% hold a bachelor's degree or higher

One thing I like about this is the "year moved in, percentage wise". You can tell my neighborhood went through a major change between 1990 and 2005. 75% of the residents moved here in that period.

Mine in the Near North Valley of Albuquerque.

https://censusreporter.org/profiles/...bernalillo-nm/

Median age - 50.5
51% female
54% Hispanic, 43% white, <1% all others
Median household income - $59,732
90% drive to work, 5% work at home
52% single
92% single-unit, 5.3% mobile home, 2.5% multi-unit
46.7% Bachelor's degree or higher

It's just 1.4 square miles, but includes farms, $1,000,000+ custom homes, gated subdivisions, town home communities, 100-year-old adobes and trailer parks. It's about as economically diverse of a tract as you'll find anywhere. And it's a 15-minute walk to the river, with hot air balloons floating overhead most sunny mornings.

The southern section is still heavily multi-generational Hispanic, while the northern section is more gentrified and Anglo. Hence only 63% of adults speaking English only at home, but 28% having a post-grad education.
