Statistics freakshow

www.zipskinny.com gives you statistics and little graphs from the census data on each zip code. 

Now for the statistical freakshow!

See!  A bimodal income distribution!  Apparently everyone in Hyannisport is either extremely rich or middle class!  Perhaps the middle class people are all live-in maids, gardeners, and whatnot!


See the estranged neighbors of Atherton and Redwood City!  This has to be the steepest income gradient in dollars per foot anywhere in the nation!  The transition between the two is so abrupt it's stunning!

See the highly educated yet impoverished (>20% below poverty line) lands to the south!
