Map of the Month – November 2018
Household Income "Hot Spots"
Maps & Facts often uses our robust data bases to identify hot spots, clusters, and True Trade Areas. For this month’s map we updated residential hotspots by combining census tract households by median household income and dividing by the number of square miles to account for density; using 2016 data.
As shown Ahwatukee/Mountain Park Ranch; S. Scottsdale near Fashion Sq.; the Islands area in Gilbert; North Phoenix south of 101 and Tatum; and North-Central Phoenix are the 5 hottest hot spots!
An additional takeaway is that while this information may be a proxy for other indicators, census data only tells us where we live, not where he we might work. Thus, there is a big difference between daytime and nighttime populations in all census tracts.
